Marasmiellus vaillantii (Halmruitertje (BE) / ? (EN) / Rauber Schwindling (DE) / Marasme pâle (FR)) is a fungus in the Marasmiaceae family. The tiny white caps are 0.5 to 1.5 cm across. The caps are centrally depressed with rusty-brown tinge at the centre. The typical Habitat is on leaf litter, dead grass and other debris. This specimen was found growing on an acorn cap wich is a bit unusual and made me doubt about the determination. Many thanks to my mycological friends for helping me with this one.
