But I’m not sure if that one bleeds red sap or not?

I got the name M. uru from one of my books which is obviously the wrong spelling so I destroyed that name, your spelling is the correct one Noah, I didn’t collect this one so I guess we won’t be able to tell for sure what species it is!

that’s big. The widest stipe I saw on Mycena ura was 1.5mm tops. but that being said I don’t know else this could be other then a large ura.

The closest species I could find was M. uru, it’s definitely not Cruentomycena viscidocruenta, it’s too large and the stipe is dry, this one bleeds red sap when broken.
The stipe on the largest specimen here was about 3-4mm in diameter and is slightly translucent.

I’m not sure

that this is Mycena ura… ura has a really slender translucent stipe and a even campanulate cap.

Could this be a small Cruentomycena viscidocruenta?
