when I first saw these I thought Collybia rather than Mycena - bigger and more meaty than most Mycenas. Do you have more information on habitat and surrounding trees etc.

Exobasidium's picture


This is far too big for M. sanguinolenta. This fungus tends to grow as an individual and the cap seldom exceeds 1cm in diameter and the stipe is about 1mm wide. When the stipe is broken it exudes a dark brown 'blood'.
Yourspecimens on photo 2 show a small amount of downyness on one stipe so I think yourfungus is close to Collybia confluens. This fungus is pale when dry but brown when wet.
