When: 2014-11-26
No herbarium specimen

Notes: LBM – Little Brown Mushrooms

Group of small mushrooms growing inside a rotting hardwood fallen tree.

Cap – 1.2 cm across. Convex shape w turned under edges. Brown with pink-purple shades, darker at top and bottom edge. No evidence of PV material even in smallest cap (0.5mm) Smell – unusual “clean” mild mushroom smell.

stem – pliable, easily broken, soft not brittle, hollow at very center. mild mushroom smell.
Simple stem.

Gills – adnate – see photo of split cap. No liquids or bruising when cut. Gills pull away from stem leaving a "tooth-like projection extending down the stem.

Spore print – in progress. Spore are probably pale as I see no staining on the gills.

shows latex. It seldom bleeds more than a trace.

I don’t think this can be Mycena haematopus (Pers.) P. as it did not bleed. I broke and crushed the stem and I crushed a cap – no staining or bleeding.
