Mycena clarkeana (found only in Australia) breaks down complex compounds found in wood. Frequent on dead wood in rain forest and tall Eucalypt forest during autumn and winter, and occasionally in drier forest types. Mycena clarkeana has beautiful lilac tints to it and a little fringe around the edge of the cap.
Mycena clarkeana forms clusters on wood in contrast to the single fruit bodies of Mycena vinacea on litter. Mycena kurramulla has decurrent lamellae that are edged in purple.
