When: 2015-04-21
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Kind of dry, text says Mycena leaiana fade with age, and these were not yellow. Also not directly on a log. Also, allow me to add: These are tiny caps, the biggest about 0.5".

Early in the year and not very fulvescent for sullivantii, and iirc, there are several similar species.

Looks like a good match

Thank you, Sir! Looking into this genus now. I’m starting to feel like there are a good handful of possibilities for the photos. Field IDs tricky on some of these.

Thank you!

Now reviewing Gymnopus!

I was thinking M. leaiana

but now I’m feeling insecure about that. I didn’t notice any staining when I handled them. And they aren’t as faded as the text says they become in age.
