Crinipellis setipes

Small, white-spored and tough!  Looks like a hairy Marasmius

Caps are 5-12 mm across, convex to nearly flat, whitish to tan but covered with darker brown scales and fibres. Gills are attached, white. Stalks are blackish, furrowed, hairy, up to 3.5 cm tall, and slender.  Spore prints are white.  Widespread and common, it fruits on the ground or in debris in woodlands and is recognized by its fibre-streaked cap and hairy stalk.
