can be found on M.O. if one searches Marasmius elegans at the top of the page. It is one of the “Target Species” for Fungimap. The Marasmius shown by Ian in this observation could be that species.

Russet (XV), Tawny (XV), Cinnamon Rufous (XIV) or Pale Orange Yellow (III) below, whitish above.”

Marasmius elegans update vote.

Intended to update from Marasmius sp. to Marasmius elegans but, system ignored the update for some reason. (unless, Marasmius sp. is the accepted new name?)
