Frosty Bonnet - Mycena tenerrima
The cap is white and small, with a diameter typically ranging from 0.25 to 0.75 cm. It is hood shaped, but flattens with maturity. The gills are free or attached to the stem by a line; they are broad, distantly-spaced, sometimes adhering to each other to form a slight collar around the stem, and white throughout their development. The base of the stem is enlarged into a slight bulb which appears like a small disc at the base of the stem on mature specimens.
They grow in fallen twigs and other woody debris usually in well wooded areas.
Widespread and fairly frequent in Britain.
Fairly frequent in Leicestershire and Rutland.
