I will try to get an shot of the underside of the caps tomorrow or the next day. I’m thinking they might get a little bit bigger between now and then, making the ID easier. But if you think they are at max size now, I’ll pull one and take a shot. Thanks.

No shot from under?

If the gills are white and deeply decurrent, probably Rickenella fibula.
