Collection location: Evergreen Parkway, Olympia, Thurston Co., Washington, USA [Click for map]

Who: Drew Henderson (Hendre17)

No specimen available

Very small, white-slightly grey capped, nearly translucent, Mycena fruiting on a small, buried conifer branch. Odor of Iodine very prevalent even while hunching down to capture photos(pre-harvest). Douglas fir and Western red cedar dominant canopy. Unfortunately, I lost the specimen in transferring from this canopy to the house. Will return to the same locale’ and hope to harvest in future weeks to collect a vouchering collection.

Alan. Regretting not wrapping this one on my trip through the red cedars yesterday… I may find it stuck to something as I go through more dried material this afternoon from herbarium collection(fingers crossed). If I come across more of these small “iodine Mycenoids” I will definitely be more careful with carting them home and, as usual, have you in mind for collection analysis/sequencing in the future if you so desire. Thanks for the continued help/support :).

May be a species complex.
