hmm that species is supposed to be found in the east…not sure if it matters but this is in the wast, he (Mushroom expert) doesn’t mention any thing about it being similar to or differing from Mycena tintinnabulum… in color or any other way.
BTW if I find it again today should I dry some to keep?
does any one want to have a look at them?

is not uncommon on Fagus in the southernmost part of Sweden, but I have never found it myself, I live too far north :-(


But perhaps you should take a look at Smith’s Mycena semivestipes too -
a species that he first interpreted as tintinnabulum, but with different cystidia:

is it supposed to be rare?
