Do you have a microscope?

I came across a paper a few years ago that identified Mycena by their cystidia. It was very interesting but I have yet to put it to use…, I could look for the paper if you want to see it.

with Mycenas… this one has no special features. Smell not distintive, no milky stem. It has some shiny fibrils on cap, but I don’t know if this matters for ID.

It seems we have the exact same thing

right here, right now, and every fall. The little fall mycena suddenly pops up with the fall rain and cooler temps. Always with a brown umbo, translucent striate, either solitary or in groups on wet logs. I haven’t seen a species name for it yet, although, I expect some would call it M. galericulata, which it may be. I save that name for paler, larger, summer species. This seems distinct, but it could be that because of the cooler temps, etc., it looks different in the fall.
