I was inspired to post this old photo after viewing Deb Dreshler’s recent post on the bleeding mycena.

The bright red latex of this species created a delightfully lurid photo, which I used to great effect at a Halloween mushroom talk; altho the cap colors are paler than a typical M. haematopus, its clustered growth on wood and collection after heavy rain makes this ID possible, altho not a slam-dunk.

Any mycena-ophiles wanna conjecture otherwise?
