Mycena inclinata, commonly known as the clustered bonnet.
The cap is light reddish brown, with a diameter typically ranging from 1 to 4.5 cm (0.4 to 1.8 in). Initially conic or convex, it flattens during maturity, developing visible surface grooves corresponding to the gills underneath the cap. The gills have a decurrent attachment to the stem (that is, running down the length of the stem) and are a pale brownish color with tinges of red. The stem is 3 to 9 cm (1.2 to 3.5 in) long by 0.15 to 0.4 cm (0.06 to 0.16 in) thick and yellow to yellow-brown. Roughly equal in thickness at the top and bottom, the base of the stem is covered by a yellowish mycelium that can be up to a third of the length of the stem.
Habitat and distributionEdit
Mycena inclinata usually grows on the stumps of deciduous trees, although occasionally it may be found growing on a living tree. A widespread fungus, Europe and Great Britain.
