I would have said it was a mycena but not sure which one from photo

Sorry for the photo -

the camera just wouldn't focus properly - I guess the mosses fooled the autofocus. I should have moved a couple of specimens to a better location, really.
I suspect you're right about Mycena. I went for Coprinus because all the illustrations of Mycenas show them with relatively long stems - these were quite short.

the stem varies also these look very young so the stem may not be fully grown,I get that with autofocus and it drives you mad when you get home with lot's of blurred pics
