Little Brown Job

Found this little brown mushroom growing up through leaflitter in Hoe Wood, West Sussex. It's a mixed deciduous woodland of oak and hazel, with a bit of hawthorn scrub and other woodland plants.

Squares are each 5mm.
The mushroom has a fibrous, hollow stem; brown cap and pink-ish gills.

It produced a pinky-brown spore print. Here are the spores at 100x magnification.

I'm reasonably confident this narrows things down to the genus Entoloma. That might be as far as I'm going to get with this one.
