Used references: http://www.mushroomexpert.com/marasmius_rotula.html, Michael Kuo states "This eastern species, sometimes called the “Pinwheel Mushroom,” is often overlooked because it is so tiny; the caps max out at two centimeters in diameter, and are usually half that size or smaller. It is found in hardwood forests from spring to fall, growing from sticks and other woody debris. Marasmius capillaris is very similar, but grows from leaf litter."
