Mycena crystallina, n. sp.
Pileus membranous, at first conical or convex, then nearly plane,
sometimes with a slight umbo and reflexed margin, even or obscurelx
striate on the margin, everywhere beset with minute shining viscid
glandular particles, pure white; lamellre narrow, thin, adnate, close,
white; stem short, slender, hollow, colored and adorned like the
pileus, attached by white woolly hairs.
Pileus 2 to 5 lines brMd; stem 4 to 8 lines long.
Fallen leaves of pine. Catskill mountains. September.
The species belongs to the Basidipes and is closely related to Mycena saccharifera, from which it is separated because of its larger size, more numerous closer adnate lamellae and pure white color. The glands occur in every part of the plant and cause it to appear as if slightly sticky or viscid when pressed between the fingers. They are not visible to the naked eye, but under a lens they appear like minute globular shining particles. In the dried state the specimens assume a slight yellowish tint. https://books.google.com/...
