Recognized by sight: I’m not sure what the first two pics are, seeing the gills and stem could help. The 3rd and 4th pics show a Coprinellus species in the C. micaceus group.

Could you separate these two observations? It would be most helpful for the site if “Mixed collection” was a temporary name. :) (You can just remove the Coprinellus pics and add them to a new obs)

I don’t think the first pics are a Mycena, several seem to have a brown spore deposit on the caps.

I read that Psathyrella can be on the stum and at the same time around it, so it can be the same specie.

The fungi at the stump probably are different from the ones that I saw around the stump, but I put all the photographs to confirm. These old ones really resembles coprinus sp.

About the ones attached to wood: caps were slimmy with 4cm of average diam, gills more creamy than grey, if you take a close look, you will see some “dead” mushrooms between them, that were bigger. Both big and small, dies in a deliquescence mode.Stems have a lighter shade of the cap, transpicuous, with some scales on the base, It has been raining before I took the photos.No ring.
