Small, brown capped mushrooms with a rough surface. Stipe is even, and there is no sign of a veil. Stipe is a slightly lighter brown than the cap and is also somewhat rough. Mushrooms growing spaced apart, rarely in a small bunch. Cap widens with age and flattens somewhat. Edges of cap are in-rolled. Cap and stipe are fibrillose or covered in little hairs.

Spores are olive-tan to brown, perfectly oblong and entire.

The tree was on the side of the road. It has dark red fruit on stems in the manner of cherries. The leaves however have a distinctive shape very unlike cherries. Notable are the new leaves who appear to curl out where the old leave's stem attaches to the twig. I am not sure this tree is native as I have not seen it before.

Unfortunately the tree was affected by a leaf eating animal (unseen). I noticed the veins on the leaves almost carving the leaf like a relief, and the contrast of the deep red branches. The tree appeared to have had clusters of berries, now dried out and reduced to a dark purple dried hue. The clusters of berries originated where a branch parted in a V to form 2 twigs. I am not positive on the ID, but looks like a dogwood, likely Red-osier Dogwood per this site also called Western Dogwood.
