The ridges between the gills

The ridges between the gills is not something I have seen on a Collybia before.

Sorry

I didn't see the ridges until you pointed them out and I looked at the original photo. I can't seem to find out anything about ridges on Collybia or not so must bow to your superior knowledge Mal. I must say however in all other respects it looks just like Collybia though and not like Mycena to me - I must go back to the books!

Janet No need to apologise I

Janet
No need to apologise I am not totally convinced myself. There is just not enough information in this one photo (and DM should know better ;)). The bright yellow stem that we can see could be a pointer to a Pluteus but as I say just not enough information (for me) to be sure but Mycena is my best guess.
