Recognized by sight: I feel like I should know the name for the common very dark brown one in clusters on woodchips by now… but… I don’t.

Cheers for the info Christian, I actually noticed the difference in stipe texture that makes a lot of sense.

are all mycorrhizal, so it’s much less likely to find them growing from woodchips. Also, these fruitbodies are rather small for that genus.

Phaecollybia tend not to have a pruinose/pubescent stipe, which is due to the presence of lots of caulocystidia in this Gymnopus, and Phaecollybia often have brighter colors and visicid caps.

Did the stipes taper off at the base? They resemble a Phaeocollybia sp. in my field guide reasonably closely.
