This is a very strange form of Galerina autumnalis. I would have suspected something different, but it was growing on the same log with other normal forms. This is from the same log that produced strange forms of G. autumnalis last fall:
I think we are nearing the end of the season for this very common mushroom.

but there does not seem to be any definite conclusion,…I guess I will be looking for pointy umbonate galerina sp too now…
you can compare spores of this odd form and more normal galerina (or if you can’t do the work yourself, just make the spore prints or dry a couple of specimens, and get it to one of us who can). And if it is indeed just a peculiar shape to a familiar mushroom, then it makes perfect sense that the individual fungus that produced an odd fruit body last year would do so again.
