Which Bonnet? And something else?

These small agarics (photos 1-3) were found on mossy deciduous deadwood, solitary on in a small group. I am only presuming that they are a kind of Mycena? Suggestions please.

The other fungi is on live pinewood. I have no idea where to start with this one. Again, any ideas would be most welcome.

Thank you, Hugh

Hi Hugh
Your last images in not a 'fungus' but a lichen. Possibly a Lecanora species.
Regards,
Chris

Which bonnet indeed. Someone might take a guess but generally you need to do the microscopy on small grey Mycenas unless they have "milk" in the stem, coloured gill edge or some other distinctive feature.
Mycena abramsii is one option but there are others.

regards

Definitely not a Lecanora
