K. vernalis, not K. mutabilis

Yes, these are not K. mutabilis, that should also have a fairly obvious veil ring in the upper part of the stipe. Look at the other shots of K. vernalis that were recently seen in the Shasta area.

May be but…………

Looks like Kuehneromyces

Since this is on small woody debris in the spring, this might be Kuehneromyces. Galerina as a small saprotroph can come up anytime, but they usually appear in the fall. There is a spring species Kuehneromyces vernalis that seems to be quite common this year. You would need clear photos of the spores at 1000x to tell (and perhaps dextrinoid reaction in Meltzer’s, but small smooth spores is Kuehneromyces (that look like this), and roughened spores is Galerina).

Species name?
