The correct spelling: M. tintinnabulum (maybe)

similar to #32923

I have found this species for the past 3 years growing on a rotted oak log early March 9th in 2010, and April 3rd in 2011 – that’s pretty early for MN.

How is this species different from #32923 that we called M. tintinablulum last year?

I am honestly having a difficult time with this because it was found so early in the season, especially for Michigan. I found these just days after inches of snow melted and it was also the first 68 degree day of the year.

mycena aprilis is a provisory name and may change

I can’t find Mycena aprilis in Index Fungorum, looks like it never got published.

Merci Jonathan

Looks like a reasonable identification based on photos and early season. I think you should propose it. I have seen this species (I think!) many times very early in the year but never had a name for it.

it looks an awful lot like the photos of this species but I won’t know for certain until I get home from work today.
