Cap on a stem; gills below cap [mushrooms or mushroom-like]Mycena interrupta

Pixie's Parasol

 

 

 

The fruit body is a mushroom. The smooth, convex cap is up to 2 centimetres in diameter, blue (with a darker centre), partly translucent and striate. The gills are whitish. The stem (up to 2 centimetres long and a few millimetres in diameter) is also whitish and smooth has a blue, basal disk.

 

There is neither a partial nor a universal veil.

 

Spore print: white.

 

It grows on dead wood in wet forests, often in large groups.

 

Look-alikes

 

Blue is a rare colour  in fungi and Mycena interrupta should not be confused with any other species. There are some blue-capped species of Entoloma, that produce mushrooms of similar size, but they appear on soil and the caps are opaque.
