Pixie parasols

Mycena sp. presumably a [something] Bonnet; narrowed it down to probably one of about four species. If anyone knows what it is, feel free to drop me a line, otherwise I'll label it Mycena impossiblensis Lesser Ivory Nipple-bonnet.


PS. Note the photo-bombing thrip(?), little geezer managed to sneak into both pictures (you may have to click on the images to view the larger versions to truly appreciate his cheeky little fizzog).

I don't think any book will have a better identification than you. Your name is Idealis perfectus.
When I head out in the woods, fungus makes some of the best surprises.
I plan on looking back over your past entries now that I've found you.

Your photo-opportunity insect is probably a fungus gnat. They need all the help they can get,
