Hi Anita and Mike,
Great photo, nice flashlight management. A little more "gardening" should have been done in order to avoid the out of focus leaves in the foreground - otherwise everything's OK, even the ID specification. Although, currently accepted name of the species is Xerula radicata (Relhan) Dörfelt.
Best regards, László
