Specimen available

I thought these might be a Galerina species, the print threw me off though. What Galerina species grows in warm weather (84 degrees)? I have only found them in the cold months, the Galerina species I have found were much larger though.

Habitat: Highly decomposed wood on a riverbank.

Pileus: 1-3cm broad, Hygrophanous, Campanulate, Convex, Broadly Convex, Smooth, Splitting in age.

Lamellae: Attached, Close to Sub-distant, Serrated, yellowish/brown when young to yellowish/brown with purple hues when mature.

Stipe: 1-2.5cm long, Annulus present on a couple, appeared to be dusted with orange/brown spores but that color does not match the spore print. Fibrilose annular zone on the others.

Print: See Pictures.
