After a recent rain this tiny mushroom was growing on a fallen branch in the woods. Does anyone what kind?

Hi, Shervonne. Mushroom ID can be difficult. The best way to narrow it down is to do a spore print. To do this, you cut off the cap and place it on a piece of paper until the spores fall. Then you can tell the color of the spores. This is important since spore color is different among different types of mushrooms. For your area, the best place to start is iNaturalist.org which has a project base in the Austin, TX area. Start here:

Good luck!

Thanks, I’ll look that up. Found it growing on a piece of branch, maybe one and a half inches tall. A lot of fallen branch litter, and probably snakes I didn’t wanna know about. Lol.

A very nice composition of the mushroom capturing it from below the cap.
