A very small mushroom with a flat smooth cap 4mm wide and a very slender translucent stipe about 2cm long. The cap was uniformly brown. The underside of the cap revealed dark brown gills.


This tiny mushroom was spotted growing in sugarcane mulch in a pot, after recent rains. the pot is also regularly watered. I have no idea what this little mushroom is but I was delighted when I found it by accident. Could it belong to the Mycenaceae family ?? I would really appreciate any help with an ID - thanks.
