Mycena haematopus – burgundydrop bonnet

Synonyms: Agaricus haematopus, Galactopus haematopus, Mycena haematopoda, Mycena sanguinolenta.

Common names: burgundydrop bonnet, Bleeding Mycena, Bleeding Fairy Helmet.

Extract from Wikipedia article: Mycena haematopus, commonly known as the bleeding fairy helmet, the burgundydrop bonnet, or the bleeding Mycena, is a species of fungus in the Mycenaceae family, of the order Agaricales. It is widespread and common in Europe and North America, and has also been collected in Japan and Venezuela. It is saprotrophic—meaning that it obtains nutrients by consuming decomposing organic matter—and the fruit bodies appear in small groups or clusters on the decaying logs, trunks, and stumps of deciduous trees, particularly beech. The fungus, first described scientifically in 1799, is classified in the section Lactipedes of the genus Mycena, along with other species that produce a milky or colored latex.
