would be helpful, namely shots of the gills and the entirety of the fruit body, stipe base included. If you’re interested in identifying this to species, often times photomicroscopy is a useful tool.

Short of additional photos, can you a) confirm that the spores were white, and b) determine what kind of leaves these were found growing on?

Can anyone identify it from this photo?

I would greatly appreciate knowing the name of this Marasmius.
