Observation 130247: Mycena (Pers.) Roussel
When: 2013-03-15

Notes: The same mystery Mycena as in Observation 127816. The distance between the two locations is ~30 miles.

Growing on a conifer log that still had bark on it, but growing from the wood, not bark. The tree is not big, probably fell last year. (The log was about 1 m from the ground so I couldn’t take a good picture in situ without flash with my Gorillapod.)

The largest cap is 2 cm across. The microscopic measures are about the same as in Observation 127816. The trama was not vinescent in Melzers.

The mushroom is unusually tough-elastic. It is virtually impossible to remove a gill from the cap with forceps. If you pull it, you will separate it and the adjacent gills from the cap. There are only three specimens so I didn’t want to do this experiment, but it seems that if you took a half of the cap, you could remove the whole hymenial layer (all gills there) and spread it out flat.
