Observation 31638: Hemimycena Singer
When: 2010-01-05
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I’m not really even sure about the genus for these.
The dry caps were small, up to 8mm across. The stems were fairly pliant and the caps seemed to revive when moistened. The gills were decurrent and widely spaced.
They were growing on the inner surface of the bark/wood shown in the photos.
The spores were not amyloid or dextrinoid in Melzers and measured approx. 7-9 X 3.1-4.3 microns.

This is a new one for me. So far it doesn’t quite fit into any local species that I can find.
