The sticky cap of the yellow-stemmed mycena grows on a yellow slimy stem. Caps are conic, dark yellow to light olive brown and typically 0.4 to 1 cm in diameter. Gills are adnate, fairly broad, nearly white to yellow. Stems are elastic, 3 to 8 cm, with a slimy surface. Strong yellow at first, fading quickly in sunlight to yellowish white

Saprobic on coniferous wood. Can be found in deciduous and coniferous woods, but it is also found in heather and agrid grasslands.

Notes:

Suggestions are more than welcome, because I'm not sure if I have the right ID for these fungi. Spotted in Paleispark 't Loo in rural area of Apeldoorn, Holland. (sources:see reference)
