Is it an ID you wanted? If so...

A spore print would be helpful.

Just at a glance, it looks similar to Marasmius oreades.

Was there more than just the one?

Try bending the stem and see if it's very flexible. M. oreades has a stem that's so flexible you can often wrap clear around a finger without breaking.

The other main possibility would be a Clitocybe. They're a difficult genus to identify to species in, and several of the species are poisonous, containing muscarine. On the positive side, muscarine is very unlikely to cause death. On the negative side, it's a very unpleasant toxin. If the stem breaks easily, then this is the direction I'd lean.

A fresher specimen would probably help things, too. That one is starting to dry out a bit. Incidentally, Marasmius is noted for its ability to revive after being dried out. If it's a Marasmius, then once it's completely dried out you can put it in a little water and it will revive to a state similar to what you found originally.


amanitaman - a "deadly Mycena"? While several of the Mycenas are poisonous, I am unaware of any fatalities ever being attributed to them. Your advice to not eat them is certainly correct (at least until they can be identified for sure as being edible), but slow down a bit on the IDs until you have a bit more practice.


Happy mushrooming!

iamgod - you're probably right. We all make stupid typos from time to time. I just read that one and thought WTF?

angry - those look like Galerinas, although the usual extra information would be good. I brought in some Galerina autumnalis to the Mushroom Fair this year, and Dr Miller wouldn't verify them until he looked with the microscope. I didn't get around to asking him what he was verifying on them, but I'm sure I won't remember more than about 25% of what he tried to show me.

Happy mushrooming!
