Just agaricoid types with gills and cap and stipe or with tubes are interesting ;) Or maybe phytoparasites that’s where the money lies.

date from last day of the year but the other was from early June.
I think they can grow the whole year over but most mycologists are not looking for such tiny stuff when large agarics are available ;)

Thank you for linking these observations together Danny. I do think all three represent the same species. I did not save or scope these tiny yellow guys.

All three obs are from Athens County in late fall/early winter. Walt usually hunts a little farther north; I wonder if he has run across them.

have any of these
