This is a cluster of fungi growing on a well rotted hardwood tree stump.The land owner had harvested several large oaks leaving numerous stumps to decay. The color is rather light chartruse green on the caps with a mauve colored gill on most of the examples. North facing growth. There are remnants of expired fungi seen on the lower portion of the stump. The first thought that came to mind was how pale green they appeared.

The green tent to the cap surface usually indicates H fasciculare. There are a few clusters starting to appear in my neck of the woods which i I D as H fasciculare.

Could these fungi possibly be Hypholoma Fasciculare?

There was an abundance of moss growing on this stump which leads me to believe it could possibly be Hypholoma fasciculare. Notes on this particular fungi where found at the Mushroom Expert site.
