I’m pretty sure these are the same kind of mushroom as those in http://www.mushroomobserver.org/10781.

If that’s a microscope slide in the spores-and-caps photo, the caps are only a centimeter or so wide. Consistent with R. applicatus.

Hi Dan. what size are these? If you have access to a microscope are there any encrusted cystidia? this is why ID by photos is not easy! :)

That is fun to say!

The mushrooms are very small, and rubbery, but I would hesitate to say gelatinous. Spore print photo added.

This looks way too big for me to call Resupinatus, but it’s hard to tell size from the pictures. I have never seen Resupinatus any bigger than 1 cm across. Also Were the fruiting bodies rubbery? that would put it into Hohenbuehelia also. Plus Hohenbuehelia is my favorite fungal name to say out loud…

white spores

I checked the spore print this morning and it was in fact white. Good call guys!

totally agree with the proposal of Resupinatus for this species.
spores are white! and this species has that nice tuft of hairs on its cap.
grows in big clusters, and stays small, around a centimeter wide.
nice species to find

Did you ever get a spore print on these?
