more gut than specific reasons

evenly convex cap; sort of wiggly, uneven striations/plications which run from the disc to the margin; white-to-cream coloration, no intervenosity, completely opaque. I’ve come to associate these characters with Marasmiellus, but I hardly know the full scope of Marasmius morphology sufficient to rule it out in favor of Marasmiellus. Marasmiaceae is my difference splitting, safe bet.

Just curious…,

Danny – why Marasmius and not Mycena? No dark thin or darkening stipe. I admit both grow on wood, can be translucent striate, & clustered.
