Observation 205781: Mycena (Pers.) Roussel
When: 2015-01-31

Notes: This Mycena has been repeatedly found by Christian Schwarz, growing on the same large redwood log. It looks similar to M. overholtsii in many ways, spore and basidium size included. Dried collections of this and overholtsii are indistinguishable. Cheilocystidia, however, are very different (“scattered, … subcylindrical to subfusiform” in overholtsii). Even though both are lignicolous, overholtsii grows on rotten wood at high elevations, near melting snow.

Caps up to 4.5 cm. Odor indistinctive.

Spores amyloid, 6-7 × 3-3.5. Basidia 4-spored, ~30+4 x 5, clamped.
