Agaric parasiting a pyrenomycete?

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Agaric parasiting a pyrenomycete?

Puzzled by this one. Reminds me of an Asterophora sp and looks like it is growing in association with a pyrenomycete (on a hardwood log) - stem is distinctly floccose. The scalp has some unusual spores with two oil droplets, whether they are from the agaric or the host I don't know. This is in Pembrokeshire today. Caps are 2-4mm diameter.

Hello Adam,

there are no agarics with brown, two-celled spores. I think there are no agarics with septate spores at all.

Your fungus reminds me of Mycena/Phloeomana speirea, or it may as well be a Hemimycena.

best regards,
Andreas

Thanks Andreas. Good to see you.
I thought chlamydospores of agarics could be septate (but maybe not brown..)
