Observation 152345: Laccaria Berk. & Broome

Small fungus growing with smaller liverworts.


In situ. Both fungus and liverworts.
Clump of mostly mushrooms, associated with liverworts. 1cm across the cap, 1cm high. Only reason I noticed these was because there were several fruiting in close proximity to each other.
While the fungi fruit individually, they like to fruit together.

not because I don’t agree with Laccaria, but because voting I’d Call It That doesn’t allow much leeway for identification to species. I’d really love to get this small (tiny?) Laccaria positively identified. I will be going back today (Sunday) to take a voucher collection of this for identification.
