gill attachment apparently varies…

depending upon which description you read and what collection you look at. Pecks original description called the lamellae “arcuate, adnate or decurrent.”

viscidity also seems to be in the eye of the beholder/condition of examined collections; I agree, these do not look viscid.

Alan’s examples do look grossly similar to other photographic examples of parvula.

Has Jean run the DNA on her samples?

Has broadly attached to subdecurrent (not decurrent) gills. Has a moist to dry (not viscid) cap, and is known from Costa Rica, per. Jean Lodge…

well, it’s tiny…

and the colors fit parvula, but I don’t see decurrent gills nor a viscid cap.
That would be quite a NA range distribution, from the NE to Guadalahara, Mexico!

I would also go with Hygrocybe.

In any case this is not Mycena epipterygia.

look like an hygrocybe?
