I’ve got a pic of a mushroom from another foray led by a different Sicilian mycologist who called it Gymnopus fusipes. I’ll take a closer look at it.

These gills aren’t decurrent.

They’re adnate, appearing decurrent because the cap has become funnel-shaped in age. I’m sure the smaller specimen here has adnexed gills.

Arrhenia is a genus of small, delicate mushrooms. The colors, textures, gills… nothing fits Arrhenia at all. These robust mushrooms are certainly Gymnopus fusipes.
