I could only guess that this was a Phycomyces, but the one I had found before was on dog feces; I wasn’t sure that it would parasitize Mycena. You answered all the questions I had with this ID. The link to Tom Volk’s page on this is a perfect match. Thanks for recognizing even the most obscure fungus!
