Observation 193794: Mycena (Pers.) Roussel
When: 2014-12-15
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Numerous growing out of old large well rotted fallen hardwood trunk. Singly, not clumped.

Cap 2.5-3.5 cm across cap. Slightly pleated with central umbo shape. Light tan but pale near edges. Button caps were conical with interned edge. I looked at several and there was no cortina. Surface dry and peels easily. Caps that were more exposed cracked open and dried out easily.

Gills – white with brown scalloped edges. Originally joined to stem although with deep notch. Pulling away from stem leaving a crevasse and lines on the stem shower they were originally joined. The first photo shows a cap where 1/2 has pulled away and half are attached.

Stem is white at the top but tan over most of the length, or mostly white with tan areas. Length was about 6 cm in the largest specimen. Stipe is smooth with fibrous outer surface. Attached to wood/moss with white mycelium.

Spore Print – white
