E. pisiformis routinely grows on sphagnum moss and decaying wood.

look like typhula sclerotina?

Endogone highly unlikely.

As a genus, exclusively (to my knowledge) a mycorrhizal species typically hypogeous (underground), or associated with spaghnum moss in bogs. No species I know of are saprophytic as this specimen appears to be.

There is a simple test for this: examine the spores under 100×. Endogone are known for having some of the largest spores in the fungal kingdom, and should be readily apparent.
