The one thing is that the spore color will be different, light brown here, and white in Mycena. But getting a good spore print from such small guys can be hard, and not conclusive really. But with the over all light-orangish-brown color here, and especially the striate cap, and found on moss, is all pointing to Galerina. Mycena should have a color contrast between the gills and cap, with lighter gills, or marginate colors on the gills.

Thanks, Douglas

for the proposal. As I am learning how did you tell from the photo and my description that this might be Galerina as opposed to Mycena?
