Observation 11694: Mycena haematopus (Pers.) P. Kumm.

When: 2008-09-29

Collection location: Hornby Island, British Columbia, Canada [Click for map]

Who: jeff (jkass7)

No specimen available

Found these beautiful shrooms growing in an alder limb in the mossy moist woods. The large limb was quite decayed and on the ground. Smelled woodsy but nothing overpowering. The spore print is white. I don’t have a clue as to what it is—-help please..
