Check out those serrate gill edges!

The umbo is very neat!

“I keep wondering how significant the little peak on the cap is, I can’t quite decide if it separates species, or is just a random feature that comes and goes…”

That depends. Are you a lumper or a splitter??
Hehe, just kidding.
I would say, sometimes yes, sometimes no, depending on the taxon.
Not that that helps matters. For this species, I haven’t got a clue…

Really cute little guys. Probably in the section Mycenopsis, but that is just a guess. There are so many slight variable difference in that section, even if you got down all the details, still probably couldn’t get a good id. Although it would be nice to get all the details (he says while sitting on a couple dozen preserved samples himself…). I keep wondering how significant the little peak on the cap is, I can’t quite decide if it separates species, or is just a random feature that comes and goes…
