Mushroom: Marasmius sp.

It’s rained a couple of days in a row.

On Friday, I walked down to the creek bottom and saw a few of these mushrooms with very white caps that are slightly translucent. Just a few… Single, in pairs, or small clusters.

Yesterday, there were forests of them in the undergrowth beside the path…

They were growing on dead stems or branches.
