If I had to put a name on these tiny mushrooms, I would call them Marasmius based on the gill structure, but when the fruit bodies are this small, it’s really hard to say if they correspond at all to one of the familiar genera. This observation is significant mostly because of the time of year these mushrooms were found.

Tiny Agarics fruiting from the bark of a fallen oak tree during a brief thaw in the middle of winter in Ohio.
