No specimen available

Found on a rotting log near the stump with the mushrooms of obs. 11239 (first photographed on the 15th, then again on the 18th).

These tiny mushrooms gave the autofocus fits. I’d aim at one and it would be blurry, but the other one would be in focus, and things like that. I eventually got a few shots that show these mushrooms and, in the background, one of the little white ones of obs. 11317.

On the same rotting log was a Clavulinopsis laeticolor (obs. 11324; also seen on the fifteenth — obs. 11240); on the rotting stump with the mushrooms of obs. 11239 nearby there was also a tiny agaric (obs. 11325) and another Clavulinopsis laeticolor. Besides the mushroom of the obs. 11317 species, there were other small and medium-sized mushrooms in the general area, which I did not bother to also photograph, and one Cortinarius alboviolaceus near a different stump a few feet away (obs. 11401).

On the 21st, these mushrooms looked unchanged, as with the Clavulinopsis laeticolor and the Cortinarius alboviolaceus; the mushrooms of obs. 11239 had grown some, and most of the others were either gone or not noticed.
