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 (http://wsmbmp.org/1/02.pdf) 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].

don’t know the name but what a beauty
stuff the fairy tales are made of
Thank you … It does appear to be so. I will do further research and find out.
Quoting from the same paper http://wsmbmp.org/1/02.pdf 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.  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.
