…for your fast response and the link to another photos of Hygrocybe caespitosa – the figure of the fruitbodies reminds me to Craterellus tubaeformis. Very interesting, because I don’t know the species from Europe. I also compared my photos of Chrysomphalina grossula with the Hygrocbe: the fb have yellow lamellae and no fine scaly surface on top.

I see these scruffy yellow hygrocybes growing from the ground under mixed hardwoods. Better photos of the same species can be seen here:

Chrysomphalina grossula?

Did the fruitodies grow on buried wood? Because they looks very similar to Chrysomphalina grossula.
