Looking now I see a mushroom, seems like a Mycena, I don’t know. But in my backyard, I only saw a yellow point, so, it’s very very small.

on the linked observation, estimated at the time, were caps of 2 to 3mm. Maybe they did range up to 5mm, but these were really tiny. Yours’ don’t look faded to me. They look fresh. But it could still be acicula…,

Here is a key you may already know about:

bigger than these? These have 5mm máx. of cap diam.

I have hazel, apple, peach, prune, one Morus nigra and citrinus in the backyard, could be any of this, I don’t know.
They are more yellow than most of the M. acicula photos, but I read that it could fade to yellow.

Have you seen

Mycena luteopallens / crocea? I just recently discovered it – a tiny yellow point in thin duff, much like what is shown in your photos.


It is said to grow only on hickory and walnut shells (these were) so this is not likely as yours is growing on wood – but do you know what kind of wood it is?
