Does not look like G. biformis at all

G. biformis is described as a smaller mushroom — cap up to 25 m/m (= 1 inch). There are other characters that do not match the photo too. Unfortunately, I cannot propose a better name. I ama nalyzing my Gymnopus collections and looking around to see what everybody else has done…

originally IDed as Collybia fuscopurpurea

These mushrooms have been growing in the same area for at least 10 years and I have IDed them a bunch of times as Collybia fuscopurpurea, whose name had apparently changed to Gymnopus velutipes which apparently changed to G. biformis. The caps are reddish-brown; it grows on woody debris; the stipe has little hairs; gill are notched; spores are white. But I could be wrong.

how did you make your ID? characters?
