I don’t. I suppose originally the stipe length and apparent radication lead me to suspect Xerula/Hymenopelis, but closeness of the gills and presumably clustered habit (we can’t know for certain without in situ shots) has me leaning more toward Gymnopus. Xerula/Hymenopilus generally don’t have such uniformly convex caps either, do they?

a Gymnopus to me. Pileus looks too moist for a Marasmius and the subsulcations at pileus margin point suggestion something other than the latter.

what makes you think Xerula/Hymenopellis???

and stipe coloration look wrong for Xerula/Hymenopellis, but and they tend not to grow in big groups, from my limited experience.

Still feeling Gymnopus/Marasmius with the upward-darkening, slightly pruinose stipe, but what about Clitocybula?

Or better yet, what about this is from the deep tropics, and my N. American knowledge isn’t mappable down there?

could go either way

Noah seems to think nay on Xerula though, not sure why.

Something about these reminds me of Xerula
