Yes, the gills are attached. They are so tiny when dried, but after dissecting one of the cluster I have I could see the gills are attached. Thanks for your help.

Thank you all!

who looked at my observation and commented or proposed a name. After reading what Michael Kuo had to say about Mycena inclinata I became convinced this was the name of this. Since it is featured in his new book about mushrooms of the Midwest it must be one that is found here frequently.

also…were the gills attached?
the pileus seems a bit thick and robust for Mycena. Although, I thought about proposing that name as well. The yellow stipe seems to be a better fit for Mycena.

“Fungi” vote

Votes are for what you think are for what you think is the best name for an observation, an I’d Call It That" vote for “Fungi” will override any Promising suggestions.

So just leave “Fungi” as the default confidence Could Be, or more specifically, make it “Agaricales sensu lato” (Could Be) for any gilled mushrooms.
