Observation 50876: Mycena sanguinolenta (Alb. & Schwein.) P. Kumm.

When: 2010-08-13

Collection location: Duna-Ipoly Nemzeti Park, Hungary [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Found under mixed hardwoods, mostly oak and beech

These are very similar to M. sanguinolenta, pretty much they look exactly the same. They bleed red at the base, have brick-red marginate gills, and are thin soft and red-brown. Pretty much I would call them M. sanguinolenta, except they are on oak leaves. In California on oak leaves I have the option of C. californiensis, but here is Europe, I’m not sure. Anyone who cares this much about European Mycenas (and you know who you are…), please chime in here.

Found a note in Funga Nordica about M. sanguinolenta, that says in certain cases they can be found on oak leaves. So, it looks like rarely this is true.
