THIS IS NOT M. alliaceus. It has no smell and the gestalt isn’t fitting as well. It is a Mycena I believe but I would need more and better photos to come to an ID, and also accurate infos.

Ps. Marasmius alliaceus is now called Mycetinis alliaceus

No garlic smell present, and certainly not from distance. I (or my second half :) would have noticed as I systematically smell the specimens. M. alliaceus it is not then.

You can smell the garlic

even from some meter’s distance! I still do strongly believe this is a Mycena. Do make better photos and notes next time you come across this place please.

Hints at M alliaceus

First, I cannot really find a blackish stiped mycena with a stipe of 8cm or so and a light brown to whitish cap.

Bon says that the stipe is black, hairy, broader at the base and less dark near the cap. Seems to be the case.

Also mention that it is often found with beech, which was also the case.

Unfortunately, I did not notice any garlic smell.

I do not see why this should be alliaceus.

Alliaceus has a strong smell like garlic combined with foul cabbage. And it grows in climax beech forests.
There are many Mycenas with blackish, greyish or some shade of bluish-gray stipe.
Do you have any further details?
