Very small mushroom growing out of the trailside near manzanita. Many fruit bodies were observed, with the max cap size being about 1 centimeter.
Spores white, with one large oil droplet, 6 – 8 × 3 – 4 micrometers. Cheilocystidia and pleurocystidia absent.

Nice photos, I have a soft spot for Camarophyllopsis.
Alan, if you have the specimens you should make some vertical radial sections of the pileipellis to check for a hymeniform layer with inflated terminal cells, if you have Largent’s book, How to Identify Mushrooms to Genus 6: Modern Genera you can read about the macroscopic and microscopic characteristics of that genus under Hygrotrama.
There is an example of a typical pileipellis made up of a hymeniform layer at this observation.
Great photos of a neat mushroom. Might need some microcharacters to ID it.
