Idenitfication based on hairs covering whole organism. Bad photography makes it hard to see in these images, although if you check out the second photo you can see hair on some of the stipes. I’ll try to get some better photos.

How did you separate Geoglossum from Trichoglossum? The stipe does not look very hirsute (hairy). Microscopically, the spores are very different.
