Notes: I’m not sure if my one attached (and not very crisp) picture will be sufficient to ID this little red-orange mushroom, but I wanted to try!
Roughly estimated: cap was 20mm or less in diameter. It seemed to be growing in dirt (although there was rock underneath the moss in some places). No other ’shrooms like it in the area.

Thanks, Ham. I’ve only recently been learning the proper way to try to identify mushrooms — I had taken this picture last year before I had any clue that such things like gill color/formation or spore print could be helpful.
I decided to post just in case it was immediately apparent to someone what it was…would it be more polite to leave off this kind of posting altogether if I can’t provide more complete photographic evidence?
Try getting photos of the underside (gills, stem) to make it a bit easier for folks to try and identify.
