Rowan Co., NC
Found in groups and small clusters, on well decayed wood, in mixed, predominantly hardwood, forest
.8-2.2cm broad, campanulate to convex with pointed or rounded umbo/nipple, smooth, striate, blood red to red-brown fading to yellowish creamy-brown? (I suck at colors, sorry)
Flesh is thin and color of pileus and exudes red latex where damaged.
Adnexed, white, subdistant
2-4cm long, .2cm thick, brownish-maroon, color is lighter at apex, when broken it exudes a blood-red latex in descent quantity.
(I accidentally broke a stem when picking them and I thought I had cut myself somehow.)
Didn’t smell much of anything
I thought this to be Mycena heamatopus.
Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome.
