Bagsy! I'll do the actual reviewing in a few minutes. J Milburn (talk) 16:39, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

  • "a narrow sterile band" Not clear what this means in context to people who don't know mushrooms
  • "lobed or lacerated" again
  • "striate" Link or explanation?
  • "and two or three tiers of lamellae (short gills that do not reach the stem)." Is "lamellae" not just synonymous with "gill"?
  • "filiform or up to 1 mm thick" Why "or"? Surely they aren't mutually exclusive?
  • I think there are server problems, but there does not appear to be a wiktionary entry for "filiform"
  • "but "one usually has to get down on hands and knees to find it!"." But that? Also, I'm not sure if the last fullstop (period) is necessary?
  • "cheilocystidium and pleurocystidia" our article on cystidia covers the issue, I believe? I think a link to an encyclopedia article would be more useful than a dictionary entry in this case.
  • "the cortical layer" Link/explanation?
  • You mention hyphae in the similar species section, but not in the main description?
  • "clamps" Link? Also, again, no mention in the main description
  • "a North American species and European species" repetition of "species"?
  • "excrescences" Link?
  • Washington is a dablink

Sourcing and illustrations are top-notch as usual. J Milburn (talk) 17:41, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the review! I hope this edit resolves your concerns. All of these recent Mycena articles I've "translated" from Smith's descriptions written in nearly incomprehensible myco-jargon to something resembling normal English, but it tends to get tedious after a while, so I miss stuff :)
Nicely done. Promoted. J Milburn (talk) 18:59, 26 September 2010 (UTC)
