It was growing on a downed log. First identified as Galerina autumnalis based primarily on habitat (growing on a log), size and color.

Oct. 25, 2007 – Changed to Tubaria furfuracea based on comments and comparison to other observations from more typical Tubaria habitats.

I am pretty sure this is Tubaria. have never seen a Galerina with the veil remnants around the cap margin like that.

Suppose it could be Tubaria…

At the time I id’ed them, I thought of Galerina as growing on wood and Tubaria growing on compost/bark chips. Looking more closely I notice that they don’t have a real veil which Galerinas generally do. Anyone else have an opinion?

Thought I’d look for other Galerina to see how many look mycena like or not, and see these. But look at the caps, they show the white veil tissue, that breaks up into white dashes just above the margin. That detail seems to be coming up in all the photos of Tubaria furfuracea shown here.

(What is the detail that separate Tubaria from Galerina? Let me see what the book says here… Tubaria is cinnamon brown spores, that are smooth, thin walled and collapse. Galerina has yellow to rusty brown spores, that are roughened, with a “plage” (a covering on the spore that pulls away once free). Ok, so not much, and you have to look at the details of the spore walls, and be able to tell the difference in Cinnamon brown, and yellow to rusty brown.)
