Growing from piece of wood in leaf/woody litter. Thought maybe “Xeromphalina”, but caps show no striations. Spores with small “spheres” inside egg shaped “shell.” Thin spore print appeared to be yellowish/ochre. Hope to get a thicker print. Tubaria maybe?

Link below shows photo from Britain. But this looks just like my specimens, and “Felted Twiglet” would aptly describe these.
Spores were mounted in KOH nad viewed at 400×. Looked pretty clear (difficult to get in focus), but I did wonder about the use of “hyaline”, as the thin print showed a bit of color. I’ll edit “hyaline” out of my initial comments.
Don’t know, but from the photo there, the spores are light tan, not hyaline. Hyaline should be clear, completely clear no pigmentation. I might be more sensitive to slight brown colors than most…
Also did you put the mag. and reagent used on the micro-shot? That would be good to know.
The spores look a lot like Tubaria spores to me…
