Something else?

That’s my question. I guess not, but who knows. (You’re the skeptical guy.) Some “proper” Mycena get slimy too, but not as much, I suppose.

no scoping in country

no time, better equipment at home. it’s in the queue… the very, very long queue.

my reasoning was mostly slimy stems. could these be something else?

Did you scope it?

Nice! What, in addition to the slimy stems, did you use for ID? I don’t have the genus description for Roridomyces at hand, but I suppose the structure of the pileipellis is essential. (“Hymeniform layer of broad, inflated cells”, in Singer’s characterization of Mycena/Roridae.)
