It could very well be a Coprinellus, however, not because it is growing at the base of a tree… Psathyrella can be found growing from trees and tree roots as well.

if it is growing at the bottom of a tree it is

Yeah, sorry about the poor quality of photos, I will get a better camera. It seems that I wind up using an i-phone for a camera when I am out.

Will post better pics in the future.

I think this must be a Psathyrella, though at first I was considering one of the deliquescent genera… Could be P. piluliformis perhaps.

The photos are pretty blurry, you should get a digital camera with macro mode.
