Observation 223744: Mycena leptocephala (Pers.) Gillet
When: 2015-11-21

Notes: Scattered in duff and on buried Doug fir cone. No noticeable odor.

Basidia 4- and 2-spored, ~26+5 x 8. Spores in the normal leptocephala range (8-11 × 4.5 -6), but there were also larger ones (up to 13 × 7.5), probably from 2-spored basidia. Cheilocystidia forming a sterile band, ~37 × 12. No pleurocystidia observed. Caulocystidia abundant and deformed in the unique leptocephala-style. Clamps present.

I didn’t recognize it as leptocephala in the field because it didn’t have the characteristic nitrous odor and it was smaller, more fragile and lighter-colored that usual.
