Mystery Mushroom


Mystery little mushrooms growing in woodchips. Brick red caps more when young, kind of a brown when older, pale gills, slightly slimy cap, hollow stem. Clusters, base is very thready with white mycelium. Wasn't able to produce spore print.


Woodchips in planted area, Brooklyn Botanic Garden near south entrance.


The young ones have a brick red cap. Small clusters. I think this may be the same as the next photo. Small and delicate.
