Mycena galericulata, also known as Common Tufted Mycena is a small or medium, greyish-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 deciduous 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. The Colour is somewhat buff-brown on the margin and fades gradually from pale dirty tan to dirty cinnamon-brown. The flesh is thick in the center of the cap and tapers evenly to the margin, and is watery grey. 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-coloured. Stem
is similarly coloured 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.
