Yes, yes, just document what you can, that is fine. With this, the spores for Tubaria compared to Galerina don’t need that high quality a scope or photo. I might have photos posted here from stuff I’ve looked at in the past, although I haven’t posted everything I’ve looked at, and I’m not that concerned about posting the random Tubaria I’ve seen, if I get a chance later maybe I’ll include links to see the diff. in Tubaria vs. Galerina.

The veil though, there are plently of Tubaria with cortinas, that look just like this. I was up in Pt. Reyes seashore this past weekend, and the most common little brown job on the ground in small woody debris was some Tubaria with a cortina that left veil remnants just like this one has. I get around to posting those photos at some point here, I am so far behind on my mushroom obs… I keep gather more stuff, and just keep getting more behind…

Note the cortinate veil remnants on the cap margin and upper stipe. I believe this indicates Galerina over Tubaria.

In the near future, I hope to have access to a laboratory where I can take high quality microscopy photos of these mushrooms. For now, I’m trying to document the mushrooms that fruit here in the winter, which I think is interesting even if the exact species cannot be determined from the data I’m able to collect.

These might be Tubaria, you need to check the spores to make sure, a quick look at the spores would tell you right away. I find that the wood dwelling Galerinas have a stipe which is covered in a whitish fibrous hyphae, and blacken from the base in age. The stipes on this is more smooth, and evenly colored, which I find means it is usually Tubaria.

Then it might not be… but if you are going to jeep posting these little brown guys…
