Marasmius androsaceus

Posted by
Johan Dierckx (Wijnegem, Belgium) on 30 January 2010 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

This little muschroom (Marasmius androsaceus) has a hat between 0.3 and 1 cm. It's stem is usualy hairlike. Its common English name is "Horsehair Parachute". I found it waggling in the wind late in the afternoon. (too bad i missed the horse passing by ;-) )
