Small And Fragile

Milking Bonnet Mycena galopus

Not sure about this one. Might be Milking Bonnet (Mycena galopus), but did not want to snap it to see if it seeped milk or not. It seemed a shame to do so. Quite easy to miss on the woodland leaf carpet because it is so small … the bonnet about the size of a fingernail, yet the stem so tall and slender.

  1. Hi Pete, I saw one of these mushrooms in my yard today… I was so excited! It is super small. Thank you for telling me about it. šŸ„šŸ‘

    1. Thank you Jill šŸ™‚ They do have lovely names. I was lucky to spot it, as I was photographing other shrooms at the time and I almost trod on it!
