and, of course, I’m not saying it isn’t Laccaria, just that it’s nuts that so many minimally documented things from strange lands get such specific IDs voted up to consensed certainty.

are a root. the base is attached to the wood. look closely.

i’ll say it again: far too many options, options which most of us (including me) have never heard of, to be genus IDing these Neotropical or Paleotropical or Australasian things based on basic resemblance to our home fungi in the northern hemisphere, and at that to do so without any micro, without any notes…

plenty of Laccaria fruiting from the underside of wood.

i got a 2 washingtons and 50 cent on Laccaria.
