Mycena for ID please

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Struggling with this Mycena.
L value is about 30.
Strongly amyloid spores.
About 3cm diameter cap.
I thought it had a slight radish smell, my wife thought it had a "horrible" smell.
Growing in leaf litter along a disused railway line with broad-leaved trees.
I'm torn between M.polygramma and M.aetites, can't find decent images of the cystidia
