Observation 20896: Mycena (Pers.) Roussel

This tiny beauty was with several others underneath a fallen log. The light was shining on the cap, and that is what caught my attention. As small as it was, I thought it worth cataloging. It was a very difficult task to remove it from its habitat, and then place it on top of the log,so to enable images to be taken. I thought that measurements were going to be a bit difficult so I used my thumbnail to show approximate size.

Mycena interrupta

The were only about 4-5 specimens and not close together on the underside of the log. The reason I did not nominate “interrupta” is that the stipes on all the ones I looked at were blue. My references all state that the stipe is white, and they show multiple specimens in close formation in the images.?

This is very small to be a Mycena interrupta these are usually a white mushroom with a blue centre in AU and a green center in NZ.
