Smell

Did you notice if there was any smell?

Sorry, I didn't.................

Sorry, I didn't notice a smell. Although, isn't Mycena leptocephala terrestrial, so wouldn't colonise such a large chunk of deadwood?

Chris No M leptocephala is

Chris
No M leptocephala is more often found on woody debris and on fallen wood of both hardwood and conifer. (I think Phillips quotes short grass.)

"On tree stumps, on decayed and often moss-covered wood of both deciduous
and coniferous trees, on fallen branches, among grass and moss, in sheltered as
well as exposed habitats. Known from Europe, Iceland (Hallgrfmsson, 1981: 36;
as M. chlorinella), and North America." from Geesteranus.
