I don’t think there’s enough info in this observation to call it M. nargan rather than any of the other brown nondescript Mycena species. I’d love to see some photos of young specimens if you find them.

No worries!

Thanks Martin. These photos of M. nargan are of some specimens from last year…the season is starting to kick in here in South Oz, so as soon as I spot a few younger scaly specimens, I’ll grab a photo or two and post them here.

1st use of this name on MO! Can you post some more showing the scales? There are a few Mycena watchers on MO that would like to see that.

I’ve been trying to identify this species for some time, and am now pretty sure it is M. nargan. This species was first discovered in Kuitpo Forest, South Australia (literally just down the road from where I live) and apparently predominantly occur in this part of the world. When young, this species is covered in scales and/or spots, which easily wash off in the rain, thus making the species tricky to identify. But the distinctive rich chestnut colour and pale stipe point towards this ID, as well as location and habitat (rotting wood.)
