These are kinda interesting… on wood chips? Hmmm… they don’t really look like Galerina, except the stipes with the white fibrous surface hyphae and darkening from the base, that really does look like Galerina. The caps are too open, and the gills too thick and far spaced… Did you save then, I’d like to take a look at these perhaps.
