Observation 117852: Mycena rugulosiceps (Kauffman) A.H. Sm.
When: 2012-11-24
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: In a mixed forest, growing on a (conifer?) log.

Caps up to 4 cm. Pellicle peels off in large segments. In one specimen, there was some red staining on the gills. No odor, no taste.

Spores 8-9 × 6-6.5 microns. Cheilocystia with thin “fingers”.

Maas Geesteranus equates M. rugulosiceps with M. galericulata. From Smith: “The lack of farinaceous taste and the presence of sordid-reddish stains on the gills appear to distinguish the species from M. galericulata. The two are very closely related, however, and may not be distinct.”
