Did a quick google to find

Did a quick google to find out about this little mushroom and found this on Wikipedia: "Over 30 species [of Mycena] are known to be bioluminescent, creating a glow known as foxfire". I wonder if this one glows in the dark...

I know this one

but it has a confusion of different names and I forget which is correct. Will check at home tonight, if no one else names it in the meantime.

Pretty little thing.

never seen

I have never seen it and it would be nice to find out the name.I thought it was so delicate and could see gills perfectly from the photo.
