Help identifying wild mushrooms

Recommended Posts

Hi!  We got a lot of rain here in northern Maryland and a huge flush of these delicate tawny mushrooms came out on a decaying log.  Can anyone help me identify them?  Thank you!

Yes, a species of Xeromphalina. If on hardwood then likely X. kauffmanii; conifer then likely X. campanella. But, there are a few cryptic species that apparently can only be distinguished from these (presumably) two most common species of Xeromphalina by DNA. So, some people have been using the names X. kauffmanii/campanella group.
