I didn’t look at this one microscopically. Conocybe filaris is a common wood chip species and the movable ring is pretty distinctive so I think that is what it is.

Are you sure this is a Conocybe and not a Galerina? You’re probably right, I am just wondering how you know, or how anyone would know.

I guess there is the roughness of the spores, but also that a Galerina will have a cutis cap (long straight radial cells), and Conocybe will have a hypodermium (I think?, a layer of single upright cells). But I was wondering what you might be able see with your eye here.
