Bleeding mycena mushrooms (Mycena haemotopus). Bleeding mycenas are so called because they release a reddish juice when cut. They grow on rotting wood, reaching about 3-8 centimetres in height. The mushrooms are the reproductive structures of the fungus. Photographed on Skookumchuck trail, British Columbia, Canada.
