It looks the same, I see it often at one of the parks near my house. I have been having trouble with Mycenas and started collecting some literature on them. Thank you for the help.

http://www.flickr.com/..., http://www.flickr.com/.... I named it first Mycena arenaria, but according to an article by Redhead (http://www.landesmuseum.at/...) that species is conspecific with Hydropus praedecurrens.

I wish I had a better idea, I see it every year but no clues yet.

Erin and I found so much of this in NY, MA, and CT this summer.

I did some microscopy – inflated terminal cells in the pileipellis (but not diverticulate), abundant long-cylindrical cheilocystidia, and cylindrical-ellipsoid spores.
