Observation 96492: Rickenella fibula (Bull.) Raithelh.
When: 2012-06-05
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Cap tiny, umbonate but with central depression; mostly faint yellow to orange; stipe over 10x longer than cap is wide; tiny equally-spaced white ridge-bumps, similar to some barely-recognizable chanterelles gills. Found in lawn, with moss. Cap diameter less than 2mm across, with a central depression near stipe, which flares upward in a partially furled umbrella shape, then sharply downward like a chanterelle. One of the smaller fungi I have ever noticed.

Species Lists


In situ in lawn, dandelion leaves give good comparative scale.
Stipe with white mycelium at base (left specimen).
Gills barely raised below cap, descendant along the stipe, similar to chanterelles.
