    M. oreades is the closest I can find, but the stalk of these is scarlet colored.
    Not in a ring either but that could be a matter of circumstance.
    Growing amongst Pinus edulis.
    Nice lichen, too.

    Located exactly here:

    Possibly a Marasmiellus or other small marasmioid. Any odour?0 Are they growing from the needles or from soil?

    I think they were growing in the soil
    I forgot to smell them.
    I really need to get my field game together.

    I still forget to smell things sometimes ... I have in the past brought a checklist with me to help make sure I don't forget to observe certain aspects :-). Garlic odour in this case would help narrow things down a bit

    Do you have that checklist in digital form?

    My big list is here: Tools for Identifying Mushrooms

    I've also used a short list of key characters on the back of a collection/voucher slip

    Also this list I've shared with a few groups:
    [​IMG] Location: e.g. region/general location, approx elevation (low, med, high, alpine).
    [​IMG] Habitat: e.g. forest or field, dominant trees nearby, lawn vs wilderness, etc.
    [​IMG] Substrate: e.g. ground, hardwood log, live standing conifer, etc.
    [​IMG] Photos: Shots from multiple angles, entire mushroom, include an in-situ shot if possible.
    [​IMG] Whole mushroom: Do not cut off the base for anything you wish to ID.
    [​IMG] As-is: Don’t wash it.
    [​IMG] Observations: Staining (what colour, what part, how fast, did it change with time)? Odour? Taste? Clustered/alone? Spore deposit colour?

    I've copied the short list posting to the stickied thread Frog linked to. If you want to discuss the checklist or tools, that would be better to do in that thread.
