Found on a well-rotted log, which is the way I usually find M. haematopus, but more frequently it’s on Red alder or Vine maple that I cut down within the last year or two.
Cap has pink tints. Stipe is near ruby-red. No, I didn’t think to break the base of the stipe and let it bleed. Done that often in the past though.
Mycena haematopus is a very, very distinct taxon with strong properties that are hard to miss — the name contains the word “blood”. It is nowhere near the gray, watery colors of this collection. I suggest working towards rudimentary familiarity with some of the basic species concepts in Mycena. Seeing the color on the gill margin it appears to be in to the Rubromarginatae Section — looks somewhat like M. capillaripes. M. purpureofusca is in the same group, but tends to be redder. Still, Mycena requires the full works for a quality id.
Did you check the red bleeding on this one? I usually find M. haematopus in clusters, and these are alone. I can’t tell in the photo, it isn’t good enough, it would be good to get photos that have more detail, resolution and good focus, but the gills might be marginate. These might also be M. purpureofusca.
