Mycena seynesii…

Mycena seynesii (Quél. 1877)


M. seynesii (seynii) is a rarely recorded, small to medium sized, chestnut-brown to purplish-brown Mycena. It is found either solitary or in small clusters on the cones of Pinus species. The above example, one of several specimens discovered, was recently found and photographed in West Sussex on the decaying cones of Pinus radiata.
