Notes: Found in mossy ground, under random scrub.
The cap surface was viscid, the stipe was not. Fairly small, very much like a Mycena, 1-2 cm cap size, 5-7 cm long stipe. Not sure what they were until they turned black over night. The blackening was only slight, and slow, much slower than I usually see with these blackening Hygrocybes.
I showed these to Prof. Desjardin at SFSU as part of his Bio 800 course. We went through various descriptions of blackening Hygrocybes from Cali., USA, and Europe and couldn’t find a better name than just H. conica really. He kept these for the herbarium there as a different example of the taxon.
