Used references: Dictyoploca rhyssophylla is a synonym to Marasmius rhyssophyllus. The genus Dictyoploca has been synonomized under Mycena. However Marasmius rhyssophyllus (=Dictyoploca rhyssophylla) as well as Marasmius aureus (=Collybia aurea) are misclassified and BOTH belonging to Tricholomopis on ribosomal DNA evidence. But neither have been placed there (yet). Dictyoploca rhyssophylla does differ to Collybia aurea in distant to highly intervenose lamellae. Source: D.J. LODGE et al., Basidiomycetes of the Greater Antilles Project in Tropical Mycology, Volume 1, page 50). For Marasmius rhyssophyllus see Fungus Flora of Venezuela, R.W.G. Dennis

i did not know of an argument for placing M. rhyssophyllus and C. aurea in Tricholomopsis. their shared lignicolousness (?) would make sense.

whatever the genus, I agree that this is likely (something) rhyssophyll-a/-us, though Collybia plectophylla looms as a constant look-alike.
