I’ve collected Gymnopus peronatus in the past, and although the descriptions are pretty close, this particular mushroom doesn’t quite match. Too small. Cap is thicker (relative.).. Not disagreeing, but just stating my confusion :)

Looks like Gymnopus

Yeah, I was thinking Gymnopus peronatus also on this one. But the Olympic peninsula is a long way away… There are probably lots of other Gymnopus in that area that might be better, and even more that are unknown perhaps. Can’t say more myself, I’m not a big fan of Gymnopus, nor can I id many of them…

a lot of Gymnopus peronatus. But so small..? Did it have any particular taste or smell?

Need some help on this one

The folks at my usual hangout weren’t sure what this was.
