Inocybe genus

Without microscopic examination, it's hard to identify many Inocybe to the species. This pair was growing in association with birch trees. Each mushroom has a "white foot" at the base of a non-bulbous equally sized stem and a faint spermatic ("bleach-like") smell, stronger when crushed. The cap is covered is strings of fibrils. Cap cracking is common in this genus.
