The caps on these were 3 mm across. I crushed one and noticed no particular smell. The shape was convex with depressions along each gill line ( or maybe it’s an optical thing with shadow from the gill) The top of the cap was a little darker, but again that could be just a shadow from the gills coming together.
The stems were long, about 1.5 inches and rooted in the with the moss. I could not tell if it was attached to the moss or the dirt. The stems were very thin, ~ 0.2-0.3 mm.
The gills came down the stem a little (decurrent). The gills were lighter than the cap but I couldn’t be sure of the color and the orange from the cap made them appear orange. The gills were well spaced.
I did a squash mount of a piece of the cap. I was able to photograph the long, cylindric cystidia that are distinctive of this species. In the microscopic image, 10 divisions = 56 µm.
I also saw several spores and was able to measure one, it was L=4 µm W=2 µm. The others looked about the same size which is consistent with this species.
