Creamy colour; cap diameter ~= 2-4 cm
Silvery hair with black spherical ends on the cap
ID help please !
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.
The hair looks like a Mucor species of fungus growing on perhaps Mycena species that is beyond its sell-by date.
The 'mycena' mushrooms surely did not look dead - there were several of them in various stages of blooming, right from buds to ones with flat caps.
Can the Mucor infect other live mushrooms?
I looked at other posts by you, and it does look like Mucor growing on Mycena.
I'd be grateful for any help on ID.
Certainly a Spinellus species - most likely S. fusiger but needs microscopic confirmation - shape and size of the spores.
It is a parasite of the live fruitbodies of Mycena and other toadstools, so yes it typically occurs on fresh and not decaying fruitbodies.
