I looked at the Wikipedia entry after I posted that comment and was surprised to see how many genera are in there, but all the delicate ones I saw (i.e. those) look pretty different.

Elsa… F. velutipes var. lactea looks like a really good place to start… (pic 1, pic 2, pic 3) Thanks so much.

It is a very diverse family, including many species that produce small, delicate fruitbodies (Chromosera, Lichenomphalia, Arrhenia, Chrysomphalina), so I wouldn’t rule it out.

Seems like you and I find these fairly often, yet nobody ever knows what they are. Possible undescribed species?
