Observation 62858: Mycena (Pers.) Roussel
When: 2011-01-19
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Growing on branchlets (Doug fir?). I’ve been seeing this in more than one place during the last month. observation 62723 and observation 62830, both recent and from PNW, could be the same species. But this is unlikely M. galopus. The spores are smaller here: 8.5 × 5.5 µm. And the cap is larger: up to 4.5 cm. And I was not able to see any lactation.

What’s happening on gill edges varies a lot. Looking at Robich’s key (http://www.ingentaconnect.com/...), it seems that more microscopy is needed to identify these mushrooms.
