Recognized by sight: While Laccaria usually don’t fruit in such abundance as this, I have seen them clump together before. To me the cap really looks like Laccaria. Not enough detail for a species though.

So details aren’t there to go further. It happens. Better than nothing by a long shot, though. And I’ve posted some of those, too.

Well guys

Sometimes I make these stupid errors, I take a picture and go seeing another ones… so I don´t have the gills photo. What I remember is that they were growing around the twig but not on it. They do not have any ring and they were almost close to the ground. For me doesn’t seems a Laccaria, but I’m not so experienced as that. What I see: cap with a corrugated zone around the central disc, lighter striate margin shade. Possibly remnants of the universal veil on cap margin.

If lignicolous (growing on wood) and not terrestrial, plus if sporocarps have an annulus, then obs. likely Psathyrella or similar fungus.

If terrestrial (growing on the ground) and lacking an annulus, obs. may be Laccaria.

I can’t quite tell if all sporocarps are growing on wood or on ground. One may be growing on a twig, but only one that I can see.

Do you have a pic of the underside?
