Ok, the first species I need help on. Maybe the mushrooms here are too young to tell. But they are attractive little guys, with nice fuzzy features. The gills are very widely spaced, which is interesting (maybe).

I couldn’t get much of a spore print from these, maybe they are young, I should look again for more next week. But the spore print was faint, and maybe grey-brown. But I wonder if that wasn’t the gill endges staining the paper.

I don’t think so on that one.

Looking at some images online, the best one seems to be:

It looks like a cross between a honey mushrooms and some sort of collybia. At least the gills are not widely spaced.

I’ll have to see if I can find more of this one, up there this weekend. Hopefully it will be older and larger and I can get more spores. Either that or I got the only one which will appear this year already, oh well.

Callistosporium luteo-olivaceum?

Did you consider Callistosporium luteo-olivaceum? The stipe looks right and the cap is variable. It is hygrophanous.
