Recognized by sight: This looks like a typical Gymnopus aquosus, with a yellowish to pale buff coloured cap, fading to white – and a swollen stem base (seen in the first picture). Perhaps not a very well known member of the dryophilus group.

Thank you both for your help and determination. Here is a link which shows fruitbodies of G. aquosus strikingly similar to my pictures.

Even the small ones. I think this might be another Gymnopus. Good photos and detail.
