Maybe Galerina – but I’ve found that Galerina in the spring is really really rare. These are so orange I might also believe some tiny Hygrocybe with these. But without anymore info, no idea how to go further.

probably makes them look that way, but I agree with Dan that they look like Galerina. Only other thing I entertained briefly was Tubaria

Hi Douglas,

I did not disturb these little guys, and I cannot see evidence of spore deposit in the photo, so I can’t say what color the spores are. They stuck me as typical tiny moss-loving Galerinas.


Are you sure these are brown spored?

These look far to orange to be Galerina, are you sure these are brown spored, or maybe white spored?
