The Rain Brought A Crop Of Mushrooms...

Hiding down below, in the shade of the Salvia are hundreds of tiny, silvery-grey mushrooms, looking pale and delicate and ghostly in the filtered light.


  1. I've had my fair share of mushrooms in the garden this year. I was hoping that you were going to identify the one here in the photo - I have the same popping up in the shaded moist areas. Then I have the opposite of them in the sunnier spots - big, fat stemmed mushrooms. These thin wispy ones look like they should live under the sea to me. They look a little aquatic.

  2. Hi Roberta,
    I am sorry I didn't identify them. I just did a search now, and from what I can tell they look to be from the Mycena family, and probably the Mycena Stylobates... It is always a little hard to tell from a Google search, but that is my best guess.
    I have some of the fat ones too that you were describing... I guess I better see if I can figure those out as well.

  3. I have these as well. Beautiful here in Tucson and rare to see in the garden. I'm working on a post right now with them and trying to ID them. Chris from Las Aventuras in Tucson

  4. i have them here in southern Ontario Canada.. i thought they might be Candle Snuffs... but not sure.
