Genus/SpeciesMarasmius cylindraceocampanulatus Henn. 1900 [Hennings, P. C. 1899]
AbundanceUncommon but easily overlooked.
DistributionIn Australia it is known only from southern Victoria and Tasmania (but also occurs in New Zealand).
SubstrateUsually grows on living and decaying tree-fern trunks.
DescriptionThese are bown with a uniquely shaped, cylindrical, striate cap about 5mm high and the gills are usually paler. I have seen them growing on trunks of living rough tree-fern Cyathia australis and soft tree-fern Dicksonia antarctica as well as the remnants of fallen tree-fern trunks.
