Mycena adonis

Common Name: Rose-cap Mycena

Synonyms: 

Substrate: Ground on duff

Location: Hardwood Forests

Spore Color: White

Gill Color: Pinkish White

Comments: 

All of my references only mention these under conifers, but these were clearly in a hardwood forest. These have a very pretty, rosy red cap and a white stem that almost appears transluscent.

Lookalikes:  

Mycena rosella is similar with a rose colored stem.
