Notes on Taxonomy: [Edit]

Hemimycena is a genus of agaricoid fungi with small, delicate, usually white, mostly partly pruinose to pubescent fruit bodies. Distinctive microscopic characters of the genus are inamyloid, thin-walled spores, a well-differentiated pileipellis in the form of a cutis with commonly diverticulate hyphae, and neither amyloid nor dextrinoid tissue. Most species of the genus occur in grassland communities and broad-leaved forests, more rarely in coniferous forests.
