It would be cool if you scoped them next time! :)

Probably glabrous

I didn’t examine them close enough in person (no hand lens) to be sure. From the photos it looks like they were glabrous, but they were tiny (a couple mm diam) so it’s hard to tell. My impression at the time was Parasola but I called this obs Psathyrellaceae because I couldn’t rule out Coprinellus sect. Setulosi.

What is the stem texture like?

Glabrous without setae/setulae on the stem and cap would be Parasola, if there setae or something, then its Coprinellus sect. Setulosi.
