Small white fungi ID please

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.

There is a long line of these amid beech litter at the side of a burn. Smell is very faint mushroom. gills very pale beige/cream
On my close up photo I have upturned a cap so that you can see the gills.

I have to get back to working, but isn't that Collybia peronata, or whatever it is now called? I'm sure someone will correct me if not.

Nelly,

Collybia peronata (Wood Woollyfoot) should show noticeable creamy white "hairs" on the lower half and base of the stems.
I can't make any out in the photos, but you should easily spot it if you can get back to the fungi and have a look.

I think these have more of a look of Collybia (Gymnopus) confluens - (Clustered Toughshank) - but might be wrong.

Regards,
Mike.

I toddled down to burn side and pulled up a clump. The base does look slightly woolly but is white. It might have been more woolly but the stems were well down into the debris and I had to pull off the leaves, bits of bark and beech masts to be able to see the stems. Here is a photo hope this helps
