can be beset with Spinellus. I have seen it regularily on M. zephirus, sanguinolentus, polygramma, galopus and crocata, but they are occassionally reported from nearly every species of Mycena occuring here. I’m not sure whether they have been found on Prunulus yet (the former Mycena pura group).

Iv seen this a lot in WV

Iv seen whole logs of mycenas covered in this. Read what Tom Volk says about itl He call it the Einstein fungus on his web site. It is in his March Fungus of the Month 2004.

I’ve only encountered it on Mycena haematopus.
