On a fir. Urban mushrooms. I would choose Mycena meliigena but it’s not on a deciduous tree.

I read that now. I was reading the keys to Norwegian Mycenas and M. meliigena is associated to deciduous trees, M.Kuo refers conifers too, that’s why I chose his reference. The macroscopic description suites perfectly,just the habitat difers.

M. meliigena and M. corticola are the same.
M. pseudocorticola is a different species and it can also get very pinkish although usually it’s more violet.
Very similar small Mycenas but with more yellowish to brownish fruitbodies occur on Juniperus and Cupressus, M. juniperina and M. cupressina both of which I have found in Italy and France. Not sure if I have posted them already.
