Genus

It was growing below and close to the trunks of beech trees.The cap feels dry but oily or silky. The smell is strong and mushroomy.
Thanks for your comments, which Hebeloma species were you thinking of ?

not sure

Sorry not sure which one from these photo's as Hebeloma are rather hard to identify down to species level,also in future it's worth taking a spore print as that also helps. There easy to do just place the cap gills facing down on a sheet of white paper ,pop a bowl,plastic container on top and a print will form overnight.

Sorry I cannot get any closer with the ID
