Mycena species? ABAUG01/06 : 8 posts by 4 authors. 4 images.
Found these yesterday growing on the ground next to Barberry lycium bushes. A little research on the internet has pointed to Mycena species. This paper here ( points to five recorded Mycena species from the North West Himalayas.
The genus Mycena is so far represented by five species in the N.W. Himalayas: M. aetites (Fr.) Quel., M. atrocyanea (Fr.) Gillet, M. golericulata, M. epiterygia (Scop. ex Fr.) Kummer. The last two have been reported from Himachal Pradesh [42, 91]. 

Please advise.

don’t know the name but what a beauty

stuff the fairy tales are made of

Marasmius sp. 

Thank you … It does appear to be so. I will do further research and find out.

Quoting from the same paper on Marasmius sp.
The genus Marasmius surprisingly has been reported to be represented by just one species in the N.W. Himalaya, M. cohaerens (A&S. ex Fr.) Cke & Quel. Kumar et al. [99] reported a new species, M. ellipsoidosporus and a new record M. siccus (Schw.) Fr. from H.P. 

I wouldn’t call this Mycena… I’d guess more like Marasmius sp… though I haven’t see the gill view …



Thank you … Another expert … had also suggested Marasmius sp. Here are a couple more from yesterday showing the gills and the base of the stalk. 2 images.

Appears to be Marasmius rotula (Scop.) Fr. as per details and references herein.

Thank you very much … for the reference and for re-looking at this old post.
