Mycena - Little Red Riding Hoods by 

These tiny little red mushrooms were found growing amongst tinier ferns and moss on a rainforest floor.

I believe these to be Mycena viscidocruenta, measuring around 8mm.

Mycena is a genus of small saprotrophic mushrooms which are rarely more than a few centimeters in width. They are characterized by a white spore print, a small conical or bell-shaped cap, and a thin fragile stem.

Macquarie Pass National Park, NSW, Australia.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.
