Could these be the world's smallest mushrooms? (probably not, but pretty cool anyway).
We found these growing in our Reticulata viv. For a size reference, that leaf is the leaf of a Lemmaphyllum microphyllum which is smaller than a dime!

The answer, it seems, is an obvious, "No", because we found these in our Understory Tarapoto viv!

There are alot of really small mushrooms in my vivs that shoot off a spore cloud that looks like a puff of smoke when fresh air hits them from opening my viv doors

Not like any I've had pop up. But I guess it's possible. I was thinking some sort of ascomycota. I'd have to look around

Actually I take that back. It most likely is wha they are

The sporangium are more globular and brightly colored than what I get, but if you pull some life cycle images they fit perfectly, and it explains their distribution across leaves.
