For not mentioning the substrate when I created the observation. It’s not obvious from the picture…

it was growing on a log and not leaf litter… Then Callistosporium purpureomarginatum is more likely.

On top of a large log.

rutilantiformis should have a much more substantial stipe, should it not? The habitat seems odd for that species as well.

Red brown

Is what I perceived. I suggested Mycena because the gill edges seemed to be staining red.

White spores? What?

Looks more like a Pholiota or Galerina, sort of. I can see remains of an annulus on the stipe of at least one specimen, and scales on the stipe of another specimen.

How would you describe the gill color? Red-brown?

Rich, You have any luck finding cystidia on this?

Appear white. Ovoid to subglobose, some appearing broadly elliptical. Will try to update with micrographs this evening.
