Nice photos of spores at least. The spores seem to agree with Galerina also. I see a plage on a few, and the shape and color agree. They are not very roughened/warted, but that is true with a lot of Galerina. I also see 2 spored basidia, and some sub-capitate cheilocystidia. Still can’t do much with that still, but even if you had everything not sure you could make the id. With the 12 um long spores, at least you can say it is something different from the species I pointed out. Not sure what species that one was either…

I will take some better pictures tomorrow and hopefully I can afford a microscope this holiday season. I appreciate your input.

Well, here is about the closest I’ve seen to this one:

http://mushroomobserver.org/34431

Which is certainly a Galerina. And probably an undescribed species, at least it didn’t id well to anything else. But I’ve only seen this one once so far, so I can’t do much with it yet.

They are probably coming from the woody debris under the grass, and are in the section Naucoriopsis, which includes G. marginata. But it is hard to tell without the scope work.

They were growing under a pear tree I planted last year, this is the first time I noticed them growing. There is some woody debris under the grass and behind the black edging material seen in the photo. The stems of the mushrooms I picked were cover in a powdery substance. They didn’t appear to have an annulus or veil.

Oh, those are neat…

Yes those are neat. Any more info on the substrate? Is it just grass and clover there? Or was there moss or woody debris under the grass?

The off-white surface hyphae on the stipe points more towards Galerina than Pholiotina, but where is the veil, or veil zone there?

Could be
