Observation 15203: Mycena (Pers.) Roussel

No herbarium specimen

Notes: These two mushrooms were growing from a mossy but not very rotten log. The feet were blue when I picked them, and no other part of the mushrooms turned blue.

Recognized by sight: As per Douglas’s suggestion.
Too white and not conic enough to be Mycena subcaerulea. The blue foot is also a distinctive feature I have not seen in M. subcaerulea.

Prob. M. amicta?

Need to look up the difference between M. amicta and M. subcaerulea, the quick difference in the key was fatter spores in M. subcaerulea, so that doesn’t help much. M. amicta is not unknown from the east, and these could be, they are grey to off-white and small, although the ones I’ve found have a more narrow cap, but I think that is fairly variable.

Another eastern blue mycena….
