No specimen available

Cool gray mycenas with dark at the top of the bell shaped cap. Faint, raphanoid odor and weak vegetable taste. Photographed growing out of a large conifer log, likely Douglas fir. The flash was needed but makes them appear much lighter than in person. Did not bleed or have “milk”. Spores 7×9-10, pleurocystidia not found. Not developing spots.
