 Mycena leaiana                     Orange Mycena

This is a distinctive, bright orange species that fruits in large clusters on hardwood stumps and logs.  It is a little more robust than your average  Mycena species and is very common and widespread.  It can bleach to white in age or with weathering.  The gills are also orange-red but with a darker edge.
