Observation 25324: Mycena (Pers.) Roussel
When: 2009-05-28
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This beautiful group of fungi were emerging from a crevasse in a living Gum. (Australian Eucalyptus. {Gum Tree}) [Looked like a Stringy Bark.]
The mantles were translucent and the stipes were almost translucent. They were about 12mm in height. I have loaded a "High Resolution " image file to avail the real magic of this group of fungi.
It is worth noting also that the next fungi image (next numbered file – 25325), was also found on a nearby tree that had been fire damaged. I am not sure if they are exactly the same species, so I have separated them for ID.

We get tree bark mycenas here, too, but I have never seen them on our transplanted eucalyptus, just on our native species.
