Observation 14777: Mycena (Pers.) Roussel
When: 2008-11-29
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This was the most beautiful fungi that I have seen for a long time. The fact that it was mainly white really added to its beauty. It was on the underside of a decaying branch that had been broken off a tree during a storm or tree fall. The fungi was about the size of ones little finger nail or smaller.
I really am only guessing with the naming for two reasons. The cap habit is really unusual that it has rolled over. The three bodies appear to be joined at the stem base. The stems are also hairy. It had no smell and I did not get a spore count. Would like to think someone can name it for me better than Mycena sp.
