No lichens,

There were no lichens that I could see but it’s possible that there was some minute ones that were barely visible to the naked eye, I’ll keep an eye out next time I find these mushrooms!
Thanks for pointing that out!

Were there lichens nearby?

Looks small enough and brightly colored enough to be an Omphalina which is usually half of a lichen, but which will produce a fungus under the right conditions. Abundant small twigs might be such an environment. They can have brilliant colors as well. Either way, great eyes for seeing such small mushrooms!
