 Remarks:Mycena silvaelucens is characterized by moderately sized basidiomes with greyish brown to pale grey, hygrophanous, dry pilei, subdecurrent, intervenose lamellae, a pallid stipe that arises from a pad of white radiating mycelium, broadly ellipsoid, amyloid basidiospores with mean 8.3 × 5.8 µm, abundant fusoid-ventricose cheilocystidia, a pileipellis and stipitipellis of repent, cylindrical, non-spinulose, non-gelatinous hyphae, lignicolous habit, and luminescent pileus and stipe. The new species is allied with a small group of species in Sect. Fragilipedes that have greyish brown pilei, non-nitrous odors, smooth cheilocystidia, and non-spinulose, non-gelatinous pileipellis and stipitipellis hyphae. Mycena silvaelucens is most phenetically similar to two Australian species, M. illiria Grgurinovic and M. australiana Cleland. Mycena illiria differs in forming a broadly conical to umbonate, dark brown to nearly black pileus, adnexed and non-intervenose lamellae, smaller cheilocystidia (mean 32 × 8.4 µm), stipitipellis hyphae with nodulose excrescences, and habit on litter (Grgurinovic 2002). Mycena australiana differs in forming a conico-campanulate, wood brown pileus, adnate and non-intervenose lamellae, a mealy stipe base lacking radiating mycelium, narrower cheilocystidia (mean width 8.3 µm), and stipitipellis hyphae with nodulose excrescences (Grgurinovic 2002). Neither of these Australian species was reported as luminescent.
