Black Milking Bonnet

Observation - Black Milking Bonnet - UK and Ireland. Description: Found in pine plantation growing in needle litter. A dark mycena which exudes white milk when the stem is broken. I wasn't able to get a good image of the milk droplet but it is visible on one with a slit in the stem. Gills are well spaced and adnate.
