Observation 153457: Connopus acervatus (Fr.) K.W. Hughes, Mather & R.H. Petersen
When: 2013-11-17
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Growing in clusters on woody debris. Habitat mostly spruce.
Caps up to 3.3 cm across.
Spore print white, not amyloid.
Spores ~ 5.0-6.1 X 2.2-3.0 microns, smooth, somewhat boat-shaped.
Didn’t do any smell or crush tests.
Spores seem unusually shaped and small for a Mycena, which eliminated many of the familiar candidates.
