Single specimen growing on rotting log. Cap 2cm, convex, yellow, striated edge, darker umbo. Stipe cylindrical, 20X2mm, smooth, concolorous with cap. Gills crowded, dirty white. Flesh almost non-existent ? yellow but hard to tell as so little. Spore print pinkish brown (supposed to be pink). Spores round, smooth, 5-6 micron diameter. Perhaps its my eyesight that pink looks brown to me, or else I have the wrong ID.
