not M. myriadophylla by looking at gills. Also, i feel like my gills were less buff purple, and more red purple.

That’s the CA one, not this one…

I think that Callistosporium should have olive tones in the gills, and these gills are rather light colors, just light purple, kinda pastel purple. Maybe you should take a look at Baeospora myriadophylla, and give that a try. Also small, and found on wood.

Sorry Noah
