Figured you would have a lead.

Gymnopus bakerensis sounds perfect, nice one!

This one sure looks like Gymnopus bakerensis, small white, white spored, tight thin gills, white stipe with vinaceous stains towards the base. I’ve only found them on the inside surface of rotten red fir bark, they seem to like dark shaded areas. I guess if there was enough red fir bark material in a dark area, you might find it.

Could have been growing from red fir bark. The habitat certainly had a lot of red fir and white fir. It was found in a shallow hole near some roots. It looks like a young tree or bush had fallen over or been pulled out, and the mushroom was fruiting from the side of the hole where the plant base had been. So it could easily have been a young red fir.

Where found?

What was the habitat for this one? Was it found on red fir bark perhaps?
