Mycena type help

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Mycena type help

Post by PaulBowyer » Sun Nov 22, 2020 9:51 am

Hello,
Having trouble with this one found on Calliergonella cuspidata in wet habitat under salix from the Mendips, Somerset. I've keyed it to Mycena but not finding a good fit. Hoping someone can help. Cap measures 5mm, stipe 20x0.5mm. Spores 9x4.6µm. Thanks, Paul
