Burgandy Bonnet



Small reddish conical mushrooms on a piece of wood lying next to a manure pile


They changed in 3 days enough to be a whole different mushroom - see last two photos. The very last photo is true to color for their color change

And thank you for the common name. That's perfect!

yep, definitly. so pale have i them also in the book (sadly not as internet-reference. Now they have their distuingishable white band at the edge of the cap. He released red milky juice when cut or picked. I use "eol" mostly just for the taxa and common names: Burgundydrop Bonnet.- thats one common name for this mycena ( ). Another interesting detail: This mycena is often visited/infected by the "bonnet mold" spinellus fusiger (which i also find very cool). Thanks for your sharing, first time i saw the young M. haematopus. This is a big enrichment for my "knowledge".nice pictures , fantastic spot.

They are now a pale tan with only a tinge of pink that is picked up by the camera, but not the human eye. As I said, will upload later
