Mushrooms of Rutland MA

Thanks to Bill Yule for identifying this mushroom as Collybia Jelly - aka Syzygospora mycetophila
In this case, this parasite consumed the Collybia and is probably growing off the Collybia mycelium, unlike on this page
where it is growing on top of a Collybia cap and is still only 1/2" in size.

Two growing in termite leftovers next to a pine or hemlock snag.  The one on the left measured 2.25" wide in the widest dimension.

This is the position it was growing in.  Only top 1/3 was above the sawdust.

Close-up of top.

The spore print was too light to tell the color.  Below is one one isolated spore that measured 8.6 x 2.4 microns.
