Mycena aetites, commonly known as the drab bonnet,[1] is a species of mushroom in the Mycenaceae family. First described as Agaricus aetites by Swedish mycologist Elias Magnus Fries in 1838, it was assigned its current name in 1872 by Lucien Quélet.[2] This rare mushroom is found in Europe.

Edibility

Mycena aetites is considered inedible. It has an indistinct taste, and a faint odor of radish.[3]
