Observation 84372: Mycena sect. Filipedes (Fr.) Quél.
When: 2011-12-03
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Growing in grass, far (>20 m) from trees. Very fragile, stems easily collapsing, very little flesh. Gills pinkish. No particular odor.

Spores 9-10 × 5-6 microns. If amyloid, then weakly so; had a spore print, made a little heap and it darkened in Melzer’s to some dirty brown, not black.

It seems to be close to the descriptions of M. filopes and M. metata, closer to the latter, I suppose. But there is a caulo-problem. I didn’t see but a few diverticulate hyphae on the stipe. Perhaps significantly, there was plenty of caulocystidia near the apex of the stipe, of the form that does not fit either filopes or metata.
