Description: Original observation #118078 (Mushroom Observer)
Occurrence Remarks: These were growing on the ground/hardwood debris. Caps were up to ~ 2 cm across and dry. Did not detect any distinctive odor. Spore print was whitish to sl creamy. Spores were amyloid and ~ 8.0-10.9 X 5.0-6.1 microns, ellipsoid to elongate and smooth. There was numerous Cheilocystidia that varied in shape but much of which I believe would be called "strangulate" and ~ 60 X 5-6 microns. They looked somewhat like M. capillaripes, but lacked many of the basic characteristics including a conifer habitat.
