Observation 181627: Mycena haematopus (Pers.) P. Kumm.

When: 2014-10-05

Collection location: West Hartford, Connecticut, USA [Click for map]

Who: Terri Clements/Donna Fulton (pinonbistro)

No specimen available

Heavy overnight rains washed out the color on these but some of the specimens that were protected by leaf cover show the more red colors on the cap and reddish purple on the upper stem. I didn’t see any of the “blood” usually associated with these but according to Tom Volk this is a variable feature.
