This habitus of this fungus was very rather fragile and small sized – not reminding of genus Lentinus.

Danny, I am just uplading all my pictures. The names suggested are just preliminary as I will look into each observation in more detail later. There is some evidence that this might belong to Neoclitocybe. But of course it could also be Clitocybe, Trogia, … or Omphalinae sensu Singer in MO language.

I guess that microscopy would be needed here. Neoclitocybe byssiseda was raised as a naming suggestion. This seems to be a common Amazonian species. It was first described as Omphalina byssiseda by Bresadola in Rick BROTERIA REVISTA DE SCIENCIAS NATURAES, VOLUME VI, 1907 and the picture has some similarity (http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/... and http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/... ). Singer later described it as Neoclitocybe byssiseda ( http://www.funnz.org.nz/...). But I could not check yet if this would be a naming alternative. Fishing in murky waters … as so many times with Neotropical Fungi.

why Neoclitocybe? I am not so familiar with this genus. on the basis of resemblance to Clitocybe, or something more?
