Holly Parachute

I went out for a foray this afternoon and amongst other delights, I found the rare Holly Parachute (Marasmius hudsonii) growing on decaying holly leaves, under two neighbouring hollies in Cwmbach. The first was a single cap and the second a group of three; all on the same leaf.

Holly Parachute. 

It is a tiny thing, as can be seen.

Note the hairy caps.
