I found about 5 or 6 of these under a barberry bush in a garden. The substrate was mulch, so they could have been brought from somewhere else or grown up through it. They were all mature with their caps depressed. Gills were adnexed, close, unequal and very lightly colored with a darker tan edge. It was sunny and dry but the caps seemed moist and velvety. No latex, veil or annulus. For the most part, the caps were smooth and a cream/tan, occasionally with some scales. The smell was anise and a little earthy. None were taller than 5 or so centimeters and caps about 6-9 cm wide.
Still not positive if the species is for sure Melanoleuca cognata, although it matched up closely.
these were growing in a wet potted soil. the Liverwort had crescent shaped gemmae cups dorsally.
I decided this was the species based on these photos:
