A parasite

is causing the short blunt lamellae, I think. Hypocrea avellanea Carey & Rogerson is the culprit. Go to: www.nybg.org/bsci/res/col/avellan.html to see a pic of the parasite on the Gymnopus. OR, www.nybg.org/bsci/res/col to the beginning of that site. I haven’t seen the parasited entity in some while. Nice find!
