Observation 47268: Mycena (Pers.) Roussel
When: 2010-06-17
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I observed these mushrooms in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, TN. There were four of them growing from an old piece of bark on the forest floor. The tallest was just over 6mm in height, the shortest 4mm in height. I saw them glowing at night from over 3 meters away on the trail. If anyone could help with an ID, I’d appreciate it.

[admin – Sat Aug 14 02:00:52 +0000 2010]: Changed location name from ‘Great Smoky Mountains National Park, TN’ to ‘Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee, USA

Wow, I didn’t know they had glowing Mycenas in the US!
