It seems more like G. vittaeformis, it is a good guess. Macroscopic features match.

Okay, this has a reddish stipe and growth in moss.

Two good features for ID.
Confer the following:

Galerina vittaeformis (and its varieties)


Galerina muricellospora.

It should be one of these but as always without micro features it will remain speculation though.

Thanks to you

I read my camera manual and found what you mean, I hope to do that from now. TY :) I’ll keep what remains of these samples (3 small caps, spore print and 2 stems), for anyone kind enough to do microscopic analysis.

You should try using it for indoor pictures, get a piece of white paper and place it where you plan to take the pictures, then change the camera color balance to custom and set it using the piece of paper. After this you can place the subject on the piece of paper and proceed to take pictures. :)

You should also save these for microscopy, maybe Douglas would be interested?

TY Byrain :)
