Used references: Arora, Mushrooms Demystified, p. 206 under Marasmiellus candidus: “…stalk black beneath a coating of minute white hairs and spores triangular or jack-shaped.” At least the stipe seems similar to the description.

MO says Marasmiellus nigripes deprecated

but can’t see what to. Tetrapyrgos nigripes not a good match, as gills on this obs. too close and no veins between gills. Cap context too thick for Tetrapyrgos, but don’t have good alternative either.

almost certainly NOT Gymnopus. Has to be either Marasmius or Marasmiellus. If 1cm across cap, then perhaps 4cm high? Stipe perhaps 2mm across?

In Arora, seems to be a good match with Marasmiellus delectans “…growing on leaves, stalk pallid to yellowish above and dark bron below…” or Marasmiellus nigripes “…stalk black beneath a coating of minute white hairs and spores triangular or jack-shaped.” I’m going to suggest Marasmiellus nigripes.

Cap width, height, stipe in cross-section.

Don’t think this is Gymopilus, as the cap is not orange enough and it doesn’t look like it has orange or rusty spores. But I could be wrong: cap size should be a good indication.

If small, a good fit in Marasmiellus if growing on leaves or twigs. Photos do not indicate scale, so difficult to tell with certainty.

Marasmius oreades

might be close. You appear to have organic debris adherring to the base of the stipe, a feature of M. oreades. Usually M. oreades grows in grassy conditions, and therefore would have grass pieces at the stipe base. While the stipe can become darker in age, It shouldn’t be this dark IMO.

Do you remember if it was collected in grass or under tree cover, Eva?
