Mycenaceae Gallery

The bonnet mushrooms, Mycenaceae, were in the past included in the huge family Tricholomataceae, but nowadays most authorities treat them as a separate family.

A small minority of these mushrooms can be identified with high confidence by noting their growing substrate and carefully examining macroscopic characters; however, many more require microscopic examination.

For more information about fungi in the famiy Mycenaceae and a deeper insight into the ecology and structure of species featured in our Mycenaceae Gallery pages, please see Pat O'Reilly's latest book Fascinated by Fungi, author-signed copies of which are available online here...
