growing from moss

These mushrooms were growing from a giant clump of puffy moss in a mountain bog. If there was wood under the moss, then it was really rotten. Note the cortinate veil remnants on the cap margin and upper stem. Also note that spores appear to be brown.

Those traits are consistent with Cortinarius, Pholiota, Galerina, and maybe Gymnolpilis.

have you thought of

Hypholoma species? Your top photo shows what my eyes see as green tinged gills.
Maybe Hypholoma fasciculare?

edit* so these weren’t growing from decayed wood that you could tell? sorry for the suggestion, now I think I’m totally off.
