Hello friends in TN.

I stumbled upon this specimen while I was out in the woods after the rain.

A wood-decay fungus is a variety of fungus that digests moist wood, causing it to rot. Some wood-decay fungi attack dead wood, such as brown rot, and some, such as Armillaria (Honey fungus), are parasitic and colonize living trees. Fungi that not only grow on wood but actually cause it to decay, are called lignicolous fungi. Various lignicolous fungi consume wood in various ways; for example, some attack the carbohydrates in wood, and some others decay lignin.

Hi Jusni,
Greatly composed photo showing a Psathyrella, probably Psathyrella candolleana (Fr.) Maire, or possibly a closer relative of it. Very common on roadsides, sawdust, dead and rotten wood. Congratulations for the remarkable shot.
Best wishes, László
