Observation 222421: Mycena vitilis (Fr.) Quél.
When: 2015-11-07

Notes: Growing on small pieces of wood under thick layer of beech and oak leaves. Stems up to 15 cm, flexible. About 26 gills reach the stipe. No particular odor (didn’t crush any caps to check odor/taste). Cap has a partially separable pellicle; when you pull with tweezers, about 2 mm wide segment pulls off together.

Basidia 4-spored, ~26+4 x 8. Spres 8-10 × 5-6. No pleurocystidia. Clamps present in both pilei- and stipitipellis.

Separable pellicle does not seem to be mentioned in descriptions of M. vitilis. There is also some controversy about clamps: they are either always absent (Maas Geesteranus/Netherlands, Aronsen/Norway) or always present (Robich/Italy) [http://home.online.no/~araronse/Mycenakey/vitilis.htm].
