is so daunting that I seldom look at them close enough. I did not check for latex. This was in a mixed woods of pine, tulip trees and elm. Looking at the photos on this site, it is either a very variable species or more likely, several species are involved.
Nice Norway pictures & description. http://home.online.no/~araronse/Mycenakey/abramsii.htm
It’s a Murrill species from North America.

I know identifying Mycenas by picture is a dangerous game…

But for some reason this thing is screaming abramsii to me. The color, the look of the stipe (did you notice it exuding clear liquid by any chance?), the habitat, the pruinose pileus when young, and some cant-put-my-finger-on-it quality is making me think M abramsii. It is also know to sometimes be a spring fruiter.
