These looked like they might have a purple brown spore print. They are growing on some tree roots near a creek bed.

Sorry for the grainy pictures, the ISO was set too high.

Cap surface is cellular, spores are 8 – 10 × 5, elongated-ellipsoid with a germ pore.

Or Psathyrella?

Looks like a hollow and brittle stem there in the first picture. And growing on wood..

Looks to have a mottled gill face? Panaeolus? Check the spores, to see are they coco-brown, smooth with germ pore, and the cap surface is it cellular or fibrous?
