Mycena

Mycena sp.

Description:

Tiny tan mushroom with white gills. It had a little psyllid on it (see: https://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/19...) which I thought was unusual. I usually only find psyllids on plants, as they are parasites. I did not really see any plants nearby that are typical psyllid hosts, so I was intrigued to find it there.

Habitat:

Spruce forest with mossy floor. Not many plants nearby, but a little further down the path were some shrubs in the undergrowth including Devil's Club (Oplopanax horridus), High Bush Cranberry (Viburnum edule), Alders (Alnus crispa) and some others. Mostly, the forest is dominated by the Spruce trees with few shrubs except at the edges or in openings and the forest floor is covered in moss.
