Notes: Very short stalks compared to other pictures in the references below and almost solitary not clustered growth seems unusual. Also there is no violet color noticeable. In German and Slovenian language this species is called Violet Marasmius?? Is this something different? On the other hand, none of the Marasmius listed in the Checklist of Fungi of Slovenia, Ed. A.Poler (1998), Myc. Assoc. of Slov. seems a better fit. Spores confirm my determination too.
Habitat: A small meadow grazed by sheep, growing under a solitary Picea abies and a Larix decidua tree, northeast oriented slope, almost flat terrain, calcareous ground, fairly sunny place, partly protected from direct rain by tree canopies, average precipitations ~ 3.000 mm/year, average temperature 8-10 deg C, elevation 440 m (1.450 feet), alpine phytogeographical region.
Substratum: grassland soil, decaying needles and leaves, lot of sheep drops.
Place: Northeast slopes of Mt. Kobariški Stol ridge, Čirče place, south of village Žaga, East Julian Alps, Posočje, Slovenia EC
Comments: Growing in a small group, a few fruitbodies present; pileus slightly viscid, stalk dry and 2.5-3.5 cm (1-1.5 inch) long and 3-4 mm in diameter, quite firm, SP whitish.
