What if it is

a Clitopilus?
No, do not think so.
It could be C. luteolus, C. epibryus, , C. subverrucisporus, C. variabilis, C. cesatii, C. caspari (formerly lundellii) and C. versutus.
BTW, your other obs. of C. mollis shows a felty cap surface with colored floccules. You should also consider C. calolepis (=mollis var. calolepis) and C. calolepis var. squamulosus (especially when it grew on Populus spp.).

That would be other possibility… as I read that it sometimes grows on Pteridium aquilinum dead branches. But lacks yellow tones.

How can I?

so tell me… could it be Crepidotus luteolus?

me personally have no problem with that. But this should be a site with importance ;)

if it is the most common in central Europe, let it be cesatii, don’t be so obstinated :). It is common, that I can say, at least in that wood.

So it can be deceiving

as to the breadth of the gills. But no matter. BTW, I just saw a vote for Crepidotus vulgaris, this is an American species that has not been found in Europe.

it hss rained a lot, and I think bugs can be seen on photo.

I am going

to upload the other obs.

Yes I know.

It seems like they are not that fresh anymore. Were there bugs in them? Did it rain? They seem rather fitting for cesatii. But 2 cm is rather big for it. But then again it will be of no use without taking a look at spores and cystidia.

You can see the gills on photo

I think they are spaced comparing with other that I have here in photos. It was alone on that stick…the cap width were 2 cm..

It does not work so.

There are many species that can grow on twigs or other organic debris.
Once more, are the gills rather narrow or rather spaced? How big is the fruitbody?
Is there just one or more?
I do not say it couldn’t be cesatii for this species is the most common in Central Europe but we need more information. Gill color would fit but then again this is very depending on age and many other factors such as wet weather.

I know that

but C. Cesatii is more common on twigs, that’s what I read.

Crepidotus cannot be ID’d by eye

except C. mollis, C. cinnabarinus and C. crocophyllus.
Did your find have very narrow gills or rather spaced ones?
Not only C. variabilis is possible, but at least 10 more species.
