Giocladium?

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.

Giocladium?

Hi,
this was on dead wood in a log pile and reminded us of the lichen Icmadophilia ericiterum which we've seen in the Highlands on peat - but obviously is a hyphomycete. From Ellis and Ellis I got to Giocladium for pinkish slimy spores but these ate just 2 um globose, and not like the species described.
