Mycena galericulata, also known as Common Tufted Mycena is a small or medium, grayish brown agaric that has a bell-shaped, radially grooved cap and pinkish gills.It grows in woods on the trunks, stumps and fallen branches of various types of decidous trees.
roughly conical when young, becomes broadly bell-shaped or with a broad umbo. Margin initially somewhat curved inward, but soon evens out or even becomes uplifted, and often splits radially in age. Color is somewhat buff-brown on the margin, and fades gradually to pale dirty tan to dirty cinnamon-brown. Flesh is thick in the center of the cap and tapers evenly to the margin, and is watery gray. Gills
narrowly attached (adnexed) to broadly attached or sinuate. The gill spacing ranges from close to somewhat distantly spaced, with 26–36 gills reaching the stem. Spores
are pale cream colored. Stem
is similarly colored as the cap but more pallid near the apex. It is smooth, slender, more or less equal, and somewhat rooting. It has white hair. The mushroom has no ring.
