Take a look at this observation that seems to drop somewhere between M. haematopus and M. sanquinolenta.

Photo #2 shows a tall skinny stipe growing in litter with a very hairy bottom half. The cap has a distinctly dark umbo – again like yours. If you are interested, check the link provided by Saba, a great intro to Mycenas, esp. using microscopic characters.

Long Stem Fungi

Possibly mycena. Have not noticed the hairy growth at the base of the stem before. This fungi had a cap about 10mm and stem was approximately 5cm. The fungi was delicate and was not touched.It was in my recollection a smaller version of Mycena cystidiosa.
