Who: MOFunGuy (jrapp)

No specimen available

Found this little fella growing on a small cattail in one of our small ponds. Cap is no more than 1/4" across, stem maybe 1 1/2" tall. Thought I’d never find it’s ID. While trying to key out another mushroom, ran across a matching description in Bessette/Bessette/Fisher’s Mushrooms of Northeastern North America. Found very few citations in other references. Once again B/B/F had it where other’s didn’t. Thanks B/B/ and David Fisher!
