Growing from dead wood of a fallen tree.
Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
Did you notice if there was any smell?
Sorry, I didn't notice a smell. Although, isn't Mycena leptocephala terrestrial, so wouldn't colonise such a large chunk of deadwood?
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.
Thanks Mal. I certainly can't argue with Mr Phillips! hee hee ;)
