Observation 8187: Hygrophorus Fr.
When: 2008-05-02
No herbarium specimen

Notes: As can be seen by the size this little fellow was tiny but appeared to be well formed. There is another breaking ground also shown in one of the images. At this point I was still not taking spore prints.
(misery misery; and forgive me, I have learnt how important they are.) This was again a continuously damp area surrounded by dead and living eucalypts. Apart from the two specimens I did not locate anymore in the surrounding area. As can be seen they are emerging from the ground and not growing off tree trunks or dead wood. The specimen maybe does have some similar features to Mycena (Mycena pura) but I would not suggest that this is the correct assumption. (Thank you Nathan for the naming of the other nameless critters.)

Recognized by sight: Based on the white color and the wide spaced gills, I would hazard this guess. I am also guessing that it has a white spore sprint.
