I added the original photo as it came from the memory chip, before I cropped it and and edited it. The color of it may be closer to the photographed fungi. I am colorblind and I cannot tell the difference. Adolf
perhaps there are multiple Mycena corticola types (diversified along host bark lines?), but as a group, they stand out to my eye by being more pinkish-brown to warm brown (unlike the swarms of white and gray or otherwise colored Mycena that grow on bark), and have a different stature – shorter stipes, rounder caps with more pronounced sulcation (rather than simply being translucent-striate). They also have contrasting pruinosity on both the dark cap and stipe that makes them look more like Micromphale to my eye than most other Mycena. I wonder if they will stay in Mycena or be transferred out.
aren’t there lots of bark mycenas out there?
I do assume that Oluna has scoped this for confirmation, but none of the other obsies here on MO have that deeper detail. Or is this truly a unique no other ID possible eyeball ID mycena?
color me skeptical.
