This fungi have a little hole in the tip

Also close to Weraroa cucullata

or the Gastroid Liberty Cap in Arora. But lacking the pointed tip.

Some call it Leratiomyces cucullata now.

Agreed it could be a gastroid Coprinus

but a tiny one. Most gastroid fungi have nearly the same stature as their non-gastroid counterparts. Well, except for Macowanites, maybe.

initial gill color can be different from eventual gill/spore color.

these look awfully shaggy to me in close-up.

why not a gastroid coprinus?

even Coprinus comatus starts out with pale (whitish) gills. see Doug Smith’s photo of a sectioned, immature C. comatus in series here:

Small size and overall shape

suggests a gastroid Psilocybe to me. There even seems (to my eye, at least) a slight bluish tint to the stipe.

Gastroid.

Pileus tightly appressed to the stipe.

yup

Si, hice unos cortes para microscopio pero no encontre esporas…

That could mean that we are dealing with a white spored genus, or that the spores had not matured yet. These look dark spored to me, something like Gastrocybe.

Can you post a picture of a cross section?

What color are the gills?
