they usually are not growing fasciculate and seldom on wood.

I would have called them Mycena zephirus but first they are lacking rusty spots on the cap which they should in getting older and secondly the spore size is too small for it. Pics are a bit too bright imo too.

Didn’t notice…

Didn’t notice anything distinctive, and when I went back to get some more evidence they’d pretty well gone…
