Crinipellis scabella ---- Hairy Parachute


  Crinipellis scabella, Hairy Parachute, is an attractive little species growing on decaying stems of various grasses.  Many records are from coastal areas but can be found in poor lawns and waste land. It looks like a Marasmius species but the cap has orange to red-brown hairs and the stipe is also covered with similar hairs.  This species does not revive when moistened following drying which Marasmius species will do.   The third photo is one taken five days later when the orange colours have almost gone .
