I would say that the stipe was rooted on the leaves, but not in the ground, although this is difficult to determine exactly

It’s difficult to determine from the photos…

anything about the particular way these mushrooms are rooted in the substrate. Actually, each of the two proposed names, R. butyracea and Xerula, may have the lower stipe buried in the substrate. For Xerula, the root will be long and rooted straight down, with the root tapering downward. It can be difficult to extract this root without breaking off at least some of it.

Rooted on leaves or possibly, on very decayed wood. (see first photo).
