Observation 113472: Mycena (Pers.) Roussel
When: 2012-10-14
No herbarium specimen

Notes: this is a bit of speculation; Many fruit bodies of this species were dried out on the log – last week would have been magnificent. I had to look down in the crevices to find anything recognizable. The stipes and margin are yellow, hence this species suggestion. Note yellow and almost marginate quality of gills of large dried specimen.

I doubt if the pellicle would have peeled from the cap. I have not seen such yellow on a Mycena before. Maybe M. inclinata…,

I still remember this one!

The stems look too dark. When suspecting M. epipterygia, a simple check is to see if there is an easily separable coating (“pellicle”) on the cap surface.
