Sorry if pestering with too many id requests, esp. if this one's been covered a hundred times, but reading and seeing just are 2 diff things for me, and i'm just no good at guessing and i just really want to know.
Habitat: mid GA disturbed roadside clearing, former managed timber; piney; rotted wood, near big gray outside red inside rotted log [where is my log identifier?]; gregarious in single (sunny) location; 50-60 deg F prtly cldy
Gills: attached, dark tan; darker w spores
Stem: zero bruising, fragile 'brittle' regular length thin 4mm hollow brittle slightly yellowish stem, white up near the cap [brittle is not the right word as used mycologically since it implies a hard crunchy crystalline texture?]. Only one had some orange markings at base, could have been from clay
Cap: smoothish fragile 'brittle' small mushroom size < 1", hygrophanous? darker rings at outer edges of some mature, younger spec more caramelly, striped - striate?, drying to buff
Spore print color: see pics - dark bordering on if not black, possible might be a super dark purplish brown, real hard to say under fluorescent
Bruising: none whatsoever
Other information: woops forgot to bite this one; lots of pics of different stages/aspects
