These were found on a rotting hardwood log in the rain. The caps do appear to be slimy, but they might just be wet from rain. The gills are attached, which points toward Bolbitius, but they are pink, which points toward Pluteus. This is a small fragile mushroom.

I think I collected this one.

Pretty sure I collected this one in Southern Illinois. The gill attachment is decisevely not Pluteus and the stipe hairs are not Pluteus either, although that I did have that first reaction of a small Pluteus. I iwll work on the microscopy of my material and offer a name. Bolbitius sounds right although that I am not too sure of aleuriatus.

-or even Bolbitius aleuriatus

These look more like Bolbitius reticulatus.

Looks weird

for a Pluteus (slimy cap and pruinose stem, the gills don’t look good either..), are you sure it’s not Bolbitius?
