Small specimens with white caps about 12mm wide. Long white spines extend someway down the stipe which was typically meandering.
Growing in dry soil under a very large log in a rainforest reserve.
This was the luckiest find of the day. There was an irregular line of white mycena shapes under this distant log and I didn't feel like pushing into the area to shoot them. The last pair looked slightly different in shape but it was hard to be certain from the distance. I snapped them anyway and only discovered what they were on the laptop at home. Happy dance.
This species is of minor concern now with relevant ecologies diminishing.
The only member of the genus. The spines often turn brown from spores.
