Not G. autumnalis…

Shape of the cap is wrong here, and there is no evidence of veil on the stipe, or a coating of white firbrous hyphae. These are on wood, with no moss, but are also clearly a Galerina, with the striate cap, hygrophanous, stipe darkening from the base and with brown spores… These are in California, and I’d like to know what they are… Is it possible for you to dry these, and send them to me? Send me an e-mail if this is possible.

I also wonder if they might be a Conocybe, which means I still want to see them…
