Observation 44729: Mycena (Pers.) Roussel

This group of fungi were about 3cm in height and the caps were about 1.5 cm across. The gills were fairly open and the caps were lightly covered with moisture. (This could have been dew and not from the caps). The fungi were delicate and the stems had white protrudences from the ground up to the top of the stem. The area was damp and the forest floor littered with rotting logs.

but they don’t have a Hygrocybe gestalt. As already mentioned, it has more of a mycenoid look to it.

perhaps next time, after shooting them undisturbed, you could pull one up, and then shoot the gills and stem details? It would be a big help to us curious taxonomists on the other side of the world…

where the gills thick and Waxy? Where the white? looks like a Mycena or Mirasmius sp. possibly.
