These are commonly refered to as bog conocybes,because they are supposed to be common in moss in bogs.Mine were not found in a bog or moss.They were found in the grass in a back yard swell.These things are so tiny I thought at first it coudn’t be them.But the bluish grey sometimes greenish blue bruising at the base of the stem told me I found them.

If you still have these, I could scope them. I’m not super great at it, but I could do it.
