A beautiful red mushroom gets even more interesting when you break it open. The stem tends to bleed a red "blood" that will stain your hands and clothing. This mushroom grows on the ground and has red-brown edges to the gills. 


Mycena haematopus grows on hardwoods. Mycena atkinsoniana can also be found on the ground and has red gill edges, but the gills are yellow.
