This looks like what used to be called Discinella terrestris now Phaeohelotium baileyanum (why is it when they rename these things they seen to make the names longer - the smaller the fungus the longer the name!!!?) This is a moderately common species that often occurs in these clusters. It's found on soil, very rotten wood and not unusually associated with moss. They have white spores.
