Size and habitat match.

A single small mushroom growing from a rotten mossy log. It’s the only one I ever recall seeing. I don’t remember the exact size, but judging from the sycamore leaf in the background, I suspect the cap is not more than 4 cm in diameter. Unfortunately, the mushroom is long gone and I don’t have any better photos of the stipe.

I would love to see a sharp close-up of the stipe of this mushroom.

It certainly does look like the one I posted. Dan – mine was not very large, with the largest being an estimated 7 cm tall, 4 cm cap and stalk thickness of 6 mm. How does that compare to the size of the mushroom you found? It also appears to be growing on mossy, rotten wood as mine did, is that true?
