Spinellus fusiger

Ordinarily I’d have called this M.epipterigia…

but reading the literature I have available this former subspecies, Mycena epipterigia var. griseoviridis, now elevated to species rank, seemed a better fit. But I’m willing to be pursuaded otherwise if someone has better concepts of the differences. here’s my observation: Growing mostly from pine needle duff but also from decayed white pine stumps. Stipe slender, visid, yellow green. Caps visid, gray-yellow-green when young faded to gray as they mature. Margin appendiculate or in plain language with a ragged edge. Attacked by Spinellus fusiger in several instances. I do find M. epipterigia on decayed conifer stumps through CT but these seemed different.
