I was going to say, M. inclinata might be more reasonable, if these were rather dried out, but there are probably a bunch of others too that might be reasonable…

The other one, nope, and it looks like those are rather small? Could be Micromphale, Marasmius-type, Gymnopus, along with maybe Mycena… Spore print probably won’t help much, those are all white spored.

Another one

Douglas — do you have any ideas about this one? Only have the one view, and no spore print: http://mushroomobserver.org/71256

I don’t see Mycena epipterygia here, I haven’t seen it appear in such large groupings before. What evidence do you have for this? Also M. epipterygia is a very viscid and slimy guy, on the stipe and cap, do you see that here?
