|Known forever as Gymnopus luxurians; but it's not that at all, so says the
DNA. Although, even after a change in name, the mushroom remains the
same. Marasmiellus luxurians is found growing from the ground in
association with wood or woody debris. White spore print. The images
above show the mushroom growing from wood chips, a lawn where a tree
had been cut down and at the base of a maple tree, all in an urban setting.
|This specimen of Marasmiellus luxurians was found in the woods with
only the cap exposed through the leaves on the forest floor. Note
white mycelium and rhizomorphs at base of stem.
