This was growing against a log

but went deep down into the wood debris/leaf mulch into the soil. This same log did have some old Flammulina at the other end of it, I will add pictures of them.

Some Flammulina species have rooting stems and grow on the ground, attached to buried tree or herb roots.
Flammulina populicola is one of them – on deciduous tree roots.
According to Redhead and Petersen it is widespread in western and central parts of North America (Mycotaxon 71).

I suspected the same, especially since the stipes of each appear to be velutinous. Do Flammulina stems get this tapered? I half thought it was a Phaeocollybia at first.

The host looks like a Flammulina, maybe populicola. Could the tiny ones possibly be baby Flammulinas?

how much of the “host’s” stem was underground, and was it in soil?
