A tiny yet exquisite mushroom as photographed by Ken Fischer

Ken Fischer noticed a tiny pink mushroom with white pleated gills growing out of his wood storage. Bev Vogt identified it as a Pleated Marasmius, Murasmius plicatulus.

If Walt Disney had seen this little beauty I wonder if he would have included it in Fantasia. That movie is where I saw Fly Amanitas for the first time and they were dancing!

Putting fanciful thoughts aside, I thank Ken for allowing me to share his photo with you here.
