Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

These little omphalinoid mushrooms were in D9C. Tall stipe in proportion to cap, small overall size (less than 1cm wide and up to maybe 2 tall), orange, decurrent widely-spaced (relative to overall size) gills.

They resemble Rickenella but the habitat is wrong: damp earth with tiny green mosses in dark woods, rather than the thick and lush 1-2cm high moss carpets Rickenella appears to favor.
