Observation 94610: Mycena nargan Grgur.

When: 2012-05-13

Collection location: Bunyip State Forest, Victoria, Australia [Click for map]

Who: Tex (Stopwhispering)

No specimen available

These are older specimens so have lost the brilliant look of the younger black spotted ones. Evidence of the scales at the top of the caps is present though.

Description from my field guide.

“Caps to 30mm across, conical with rounded apex, dark brown to almost black when young and ornamented with small white evanescent fibrillose scales. Mature specimens become expanded, lose the scales, and are difficult to recognize. Gregarius to slighty caespitose on dead wood.”
