I found maybe a dozen of these small mushrooms scattered in moss and leaves on a mound of a very old rotted log; CAP 2-5 cm wide, convex to uplifted but always with a distinctly depressed center, pale tan but fading a bit in age (hygrophanous?); GILLS weakly to very decurrent, spores barely visible as a sparkly fine dusting at 20x; STIPE straight to curved, about 3-4 mm thick, copious dense white mycelia all around base attaching it to lots of roots, moss, leaves and other debris; SPORES white?; VEIL couldn’t find any sign; OTHER no odor, bruising, latex, etc. but didn’t taste it.
