Observation 20389: Marasmiellus Murrill
When: 2009-04-16
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This very tiny fungi had attached itself to a gum leaf (eucalyptus)on the forest floor. On fairly close examination the stipe appears to have a furry surface, and remains about the same thickness throughout. From the gum leaf it can be seen that this specimen is only about 3-4mm across the cap and the stipe is about 10-12mm in length. The mantle is tending to be cupshape or concave.

This reminds me of Marasmiellus or Marasmius …

I can’t tell what genus this belongs to, but it reminds of a Marasmius or something like that.

It’s hardly a Hygrocybe and at least not leucogloea, which has a glutinous cap.
You’ll find a description in this article:
