It is hard to tell, but all the other observations of M. aurantiidisca seem to have much paler cap margins.

it’s tough to say from this picture but it’s a little conical for Mycena strobilinoides that’s why I called it M. aurantiidisca

…and Nathan’s aren’t even growing on needles! My information is so out of date as to be useless. If you say these are aurantiidisca, then I say a-okay.
