Glad to be back, thanks for your kind messages!

Again with minifungi... This is a very small type of Mycena family, I guess, although I wear glasses and my sight begins to fail with these. It is growing on an eucaliptus bark.

You can have a idea of the size with the WORKSHOP were you can compare with a 5 Euro Cent coin. The coin measures is 21 mm (.75 inch) long and 1.5 mm high. and shows a image of Saint Jaques Cathedral en Santiago de Compostela, a famous pellegrination city located 60 Km. from where this image is taken. This year is Saint year and a lot of people come walking, cycling, riding and making the Saint Jaques way from hundres, and sometimes thousands of Kms.

It will be difficult to recover time and critique a lot of nice pictures shown all this days, thanks a lot for them.

Hope you like!

Wow, they sure are small.

Welcome back filipe you have been much missed hope every thing worked out OK?
These are well seen and boy are they small . in some ways you WS is a sharper image, on my screen though I can see the start of some colour spots within the image which usually means when I am preparing an image that I enlarged it too much.
still a good image though , and again welcome back.

De regreso querido amigo... y como no podia ser de otra manera con hongos... y en este caso tan especiales por su tamaño y porque parecen sacados de un cuento más que de un bosque.
Como no conozco el verdadero tamaño de la peseta (que anticuado.. podrias usar euros ;-), no puedo evaluar en tu workshop el tamaño exacto, aunque descarto la miniscula proporcion con otros publicados anteriormente.
En este tamaño no creo que tenga mucho sentido criticar la calidad y el blablabla... importa el aporte de las fotos como tales.
Gracias por estar aqui nuevamente con nosotros.

Great to see you back Felipe!
Most people wouldn't even notice fungi this small.Thanks for showing them to us this close.They sure are teeny weeny Mycenae.

Nice to see ya post Felipe, Hope your back for good now. They are very small. Looks like some fragile glass works. Very nice work.

Great shot Felipe, I'm amazed at how small they are, the attachment to the subsstrate looks very weak.

Good to see you back on TN, hope all is well.

Robisz dobre i ciekawe zdjecia grzybów.
Wielkie brawa. Robert.

First at all, yuors it's a fantastic macro-photo, very impressive, you have captured all mini-details.
Now about ID: like you saw, this is a Mycena. It belongs to the section SACCHARIFERAE Kuehner ex Singer 1962 which counts only 7 species in Europe, including only 4 with white colour like your photo shows.
These are:
1) Mycena corynephora Maas Geesteranus 1983 whitout basal bulb and whitout basal disc.
2) Mycena adscendens (Lasch 1829) Maas Geesteranus 1981 with small basal disc and cap a little slimy.
3) Mycena nucicola Huijsman 1958 with small basal disc and cap never slimy, with flexuosus stipe, more soaring and more slim than Mycena adscendens.
4) Mycena querciramuli Robich 2003, just recently discovered by my friend Giovanni Robich from Venezia, whitout basal disc, with evident basal bulb, very soaring and slim.
Naturally there are a lot of others differences but they are microscopical.
Anyhow, your photo shows the typical Mycena adscendens, never slim, with small but evident basal disc.
It is a quite uncommon spece; there are few photos in literature, so most people often get wrong the ID.

Impresionante, es dificil retratar 4 pixeles y que queden bien, como un paisaje. Excelente evolucion y trabajo.
Un saludo de circe.
