Recognized by sight: We saw one a couple days ago with this hygrophanous band and a finely scurfy stipe, growing on a living birch with a rotted center. The gill color looks off, but it might be because of the sun streaming through them.

Flammulina , I don’t think. But I couldn’t say what it is. I looked at it for about five minutes last night. Brown spores (probably light brown). That’s about as far as I get – Kuehneromyces?
But that scruffy stipe seems like something else. I just dunno.
