Observation 49735: Mycena (Pers.) Roussel

When: 2010-08-03

Collection location: Point Reyes National Seashore, Marin Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

These were growing on conifer needles/debris and had caps up to about 2.0 cm across.
The caps seemed somewhat hygrophanous and I did not detect any distinctive odor.
The gills were somewhat grayish and basically notched and subdistant.
The spores were white and amyloid in Melzers.
The spores measured ~7.3-9.0 X 5.5-6.2 microns and were smooth.
There was some cystidia on the gills.(see photo)
They looked common but other than generally fitting into the “Mycena murina group” in Mushrooms Demystified, I haven’t been able to come up with a species.
