Micromphale brassicolens (Romagn.) P.D. Orton (1960)     *Collections: California & Europe
Syn: Gymnopus brassicolens

This species is very common in areas with rotting plant debris. In California I see it mainly around thick layers of fallen Eucalyptus and Live Oak foliage. It is easily identifiable by the unpleasant odor of sewage and longitudinally split stem with black tapering base.
