Measuring approximately 1cm across, pixie’s parasol is a diminutive mushroom of fallen wood substrates in moist forests of Australia, New Zealand and Chile. The Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne had a fungus of the month site for two and a half years, and Mycena interrupta was featured. Special mention was made of the Gondwanan distribution pattern.
