Found huge masses of these growing on wet algae-covered muddy slopes in alpine meadow where snow had just finished melting off from last winter. The masses were so large you could see them from hundreds of yards away like someone had spray-painted the ground! The disks are anywhere from 0.8 to 2.1 mm wide (probably much greater range, that’s just the range of the ones in my specimen), flat top, convex bottom (hemispherical shape overall), all glabrous, margin slightly ragged, very crowded and confluent but not scrunching up into irregular shapes like many other crowded disk fungi.
