| Tetrapyrgos nigripes
|This tiny mushroom grows from rotting sticks and leaves and is abundant
during wet summer weather. Often confused with Marasmiellus candidus
which usually has a larger cap. Spore shape is the key to separating the two.
|Spores of Tetrapyrgos nigripes are
triangular. (Spores of
Marasmiellus candidus are
lacrymoid, or tear-shaped.)
