Description: Original observation #8636 (Mushroom Observer)
Occurrence Remarks: This is a mycena that does a great impersonation of a psathyrella...with a medium sized fruit body, dark, purple-brown gills and a hygrophaous cap. We'd have still been barking up that wrong tree if Coleman hadn't gotten a WHITE sporeprint! Those darn mushrooms can fool ya...
