Mycena laevigata is a small white agaric that has a convex, radially grooved cap. The mushroom grows in small groups to densely cespitose on decaying wood and stumps of conifers. It fruits from late summer to autumn.

Cap varies in shape from parabolical to convex, occasionally with a central bump and slight depression. It is smooth, sometimes showing prominent or shallow grooves. The cap is translucent-striated, slightly slippery when wet, and changes appearance with moisture. Its colour ranges from white to cream, often with a touch of pale brownish pink at the centre. The flesh is white and thin. Gills white, adnate, gill spacing ranges from close to somewhat distantly spaced. Stem is similarly coloured as the cap, smooth, and slender. It is darker to grey towards the base, especially in younger specimens. The base often rooting, covered with whitish fibrils. The stem has no ring. Spore print white.

Microscopic Features: The spores measure approximately 7-9 x 3.8-4.8 ┬Ám and have a pip-like shape. They are smooth in texture and exhibit amyloid characteristics.

Many mushrooms are poisonous and some are lethally poisonous. It can be very difficult to distinguish between an edible and a poisonous mushroom. Because of that, we strongly advise against consuming wild mushrooms, and this site does not contain any information about the edibility or toxicity of mushrooms.
