Observation 27851: Phaeocollybia kauffmanii (A.H. Sm.) Singer

Notes:
These had some properties that put them in between a few species. Phaeocollybia kauffmanii looks the most likely due to the overall size and the spore size.
The spores seemed a little small for P. californica. They averaged about 8.0 X 4.7 microns and the stems were up to 1.8 cm thick.
Also, they were growing among Sitka spruce which is apparently the primary host for this species.
