Caption: 44-Mycena aff. capillaris: a. spores.

Article: Horak, E. (1971). A contribution towards the revision of the Agaricales (Fungi) from New Zealand. New Zealand Journal of Botany 9(3): 403-462 (http://www.rsnz.org/publish/abstracts.php).
Notes: The spores of the two collections studied (COLENSO 1005, b 412) are quite similar to those of European specimens of this species. The tiny carpophores made it difficult to study the structure of the cuticle and other characters essential for an exact identification.
