Beautiful In Pink

Rosy Bonnet Mycena rosea

I believe this is Rosy Bonnet (Mycena rosea), very closed related to Mycena Pura, and in fact they may well be one and the same species.

I spotted this beautful pair in the local wood this morning as I went on my first mushroom hunt of the season. Muddy knees indeed!

    1. Thank you Linda πŸ™‚ I have only seen them once before in my lifetime, and after yesterday I saw some fresh ones again this morning. The colours are quite special.
