How much do you want for it? I am interested…
This book has keys, descriptions and color photos for 35 species of Hemimycena. I have an extra copy for sale if someone is interested.
Antonín, Vladimír and Machiel E. Noordeloos. 2004. A Monograph Of The Genera Hemimycena, Delicatula, Fayodia, Gamundia, Myxomphalia, Resinomycena, Rickenella, and Xeromphalina (Tribus Mycenae sensu Singer, Mycena excluded) In Europe. IHW Verlag, Eching. 279p.
No work has been done on these? Imagine that! :)
This looks like the classic Hemimycena sp. ‘shroom. I’ve been told that not much work has been done on these, so they are mostly unknown species.
Spore color is white by the way…
