Marasmius plicatulus

Pileus
Cap 1-4.0 cm broad, convex to campanulate, nearly plane in age; surface dry, velvety, mahogany-brown, rusty-brown or yellowish-brown, darkest at disc, striate to furrowed in age; flesh thin, pallid.

Lamellae
Gills nearly free, distant, broad, pallid to pinkish-buff.

Stipe
Stipe 5-11 cm long, 1.5-3.5 mm thick, smooth, equal, brittle, mahogany-brown at base, lighter above; well developed white mycelial mat at base.

Spores
Spores 11-14.5 x 5-6.5 microns, elliptical, smooth, non-amyloid. Spore print white.

Habitat
Scattered, gregarious, or in troops under oaks and other trees; fruiting from late fall through mid-winter.

Edibility
Unknown, but too small and tough to be considered for the table.

Comments
This handsome Marasmius is recognized by its velvety mahogany cap, slender stature, widely spaced pallid to pinkish gills, and shiny, thin, wiry stipe. It's litter habitat is often shared with Mycenas, also small and white spored, but members of this genus have closer spaced gills, lack wiry stipes and have different cap cuticles.
