I probably have a specimen of this… I’ll be “adding” my stuff after posting the remaining zillion photos from the last few weeks.

Hemimycena tortuosa . The substrate is right.
For little, white Mycenoids, that species can make micro fun!

micro doesn’t like ME!!! :)

but it can be very very useful. you can’t make an ID just by looking at the outside of these tiny Hemimycenas.

I don’t like micro

But if I can’t figure them out with macro within a few years, I’m willing to send them to someone who does ;)

My half (at most)-hearted initial attempt at understanding the small snow white mycenoids around here “distinguished” tiny twisty distant-gilled ones from (relatively) tall stately boringly-spaced-gilled ones.

was it the cystidia that were tiny and twisty?

or just a silly name for these?

if the former, it could be Hemimycena tortuosa.

A fine example of both macro and micro by Sava can be found here:
