With the velvety stem and cap, this could well be a Flammulina species! Great capture!

Mark Ridgway-I'm sorry. I asked the "support" folks to see why I couldn't remove it from the Mission but you're right...mushrooms are not plants even though they: grow in the ground, are a living organism, have no sense organs, lack the power of voluntary movement...my bad. "-) So, you were able to remove this posting from the Mission? Were you able to remove the other one as well? The "support" folks said I had to make the correction using a different "browser". Apparently you can't make the change (to remove) using Chrome. Yes. I believe they were dusty or slightly fuzzy-looking on top. I usually try to photograph them from various angle but for some reason, did not with these guys. Augh.

Fixed the mission for you. They really are pretty little fungi. They look to be velvety on top - do you remember if that's right? Growing from wood?

Mark Ridgway-Its labeled Fungi in the identification section but perhaps you were referring to my Tags or Missions? I've removed the incorrect tags but the system isn't allowing me to remove it from the mission Minnesota Wildlife (Plants)...not sure why. I've tried deleting it twice now. Thanks for pointing out my error so I could make the necessary correction/s. :-)

Beautiful little fungi Janelle. I note you have tagged your spotting with 'plants' and 'flowers' - do you know that fungi aren't related to plants at all? Actually they are biologically closer to animals !!
