These are the ones you have.
This observation was made years ago, I think neo ended up with most of them.

Are these the specimens I have? or are they from a different observation.

You know that I do not own a microscope, I did send a few specimens to the person that I sent the suspected gymnopilus aeruginosus. He is going to look at both under his scope and if I remember correctly he has an oil immersion lens so hopefully he can get some measurements. I am just waiting to hear back from him. I will keep everyone updated When I find out more about them.

Do the stems uproot quite easily?

The stems of these seem firmer than most none bluing conocybe that I have found. They uprooted fairly easy with a little tug. They are quite a small mushroom, I would guess less than 5 inches. I did notice that the mycelium they were growing from did not form a very large mat and they were only growing in a small cluster of 10 or less in one small area. The mushrooms were growing from wood chips and not grass or moss like previously reported.

Nice find
