Observation 58470: Marasmius Fr.

It’s hard to tell what’s going on here. The plant on the left is either chlorophyllic and simply grew out of enough sunlight to color its leaves, or its coloring has something to do with the mushroom which has lassoed it in thick rhizomorphic cords. A handful of tropical Marasmius spp. (this one included) produce mycelial exudates, but in this case the liquid appears to be exuded by both the mycelium and a plant beside it.
