When: 2008-09-29

Collection location: Hershey, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: James V. Gallagher IV (lbjvg)

No specimen available

Possibly insufficient information to identify. Found growing on ground in hardwood woods. Pileus: convex, pinkish; Stipe: pinkish, central,equal; Lamellae: free or notched?, white to pink, close to subdistant; Spore print: white to any light color; Microscopic: round, 5 um, ?stubby spine, seem to stick together. I can’t get all these features to key out without contradictions.

mycena – I don’t think the spore description matches

mycena pura is what I often arrived at also – but the spore description as subcylindric 5-9 to 3-4 um is different from how I would describe these.

I don’t know why it ended up as Prunulus, I’d prefer the name Mycena pura..
