Thanks for this… This looks like it is in the ground in a mixture of moss and grass. With the peaked cap, this is probably what I was calling G. badipes, and this species seems to come up all over the northern coast (at least from Pt. Reyes north…), once there is enough dampness on the ground and moss. I don’t think it is G. badipes at this point though, because these seem to have 4-spored basidia, and G. badipes is a 2-spored species. It will be good to look closer though…
