Most Galerinas…

Most Galerinas grow in moss, in terms of species diversity. Most of the section Naucoriopsis (which includes the G. marginata) grow on wood. Also those perhaps should be a different genus on their own. But sections Galerina, Tubariopsis, and Mycenopsis mostly grow on moss. Section Sideroides (at least I think that should be a section…(or its own genus, I mean common look at those spores! Right?)), will also grow on wood, or usually small conifer debris (needles and twigs).

These kinda look like G. sideroides, maybe… Was there conifers around? Although easily these can be yet another Mycenopsis (there are lots and lots of those, and mostly no way to make sense of them all). And another one I wouldn’t mind putting under the scope…
