The cap has tiny flecks, which resemble mica, that wash or wear off as it matures. It deliquesces, the spores becoming an ink-like liquid. C. micaceus grows on dead wood.

A mushroom! Finally! This species has gills that are nearly free from the stem, appearing a white-ish grayed color. The stem is silky smooth and hollow. They are edible and most appetizing when young.

I was clearing grass from our hops patch when I found these guys in scattered groups. A little digging showed some decomposing wood under the soil which would account for their substrate.

This is an edible species which i've tried several times. These ones went into a delicious pasta sauce.

Micaceus is a member of the inky cap family, meaning that in older specimens, the caps will turn black and oily, eventually dissolving. But while they are young and prime these guys are easy to tell with their small button caps, striations (lines), and especially the gold specks which dot them and reflect sunlight. The stipes are white and the gills are crowded and white-to- black depending on age.

They start decomposing about an hour after you pull them so you want to get cooking quickly!
