    M. epipterygia is a common species in Western Europe (amongst others Netherlands and Belgium). It grows in diverse habitats: in deciduous and coniferous woods, but it is also found in heather and agrid grasslands. This species grows on the ground. See the picture in the taxobox for a typical underground where M. epipterygia can be found.

    Mycena epipterygia has a sticky, elastic and deductible surface.[1] Its cap is one to two centimetres wide and its colour varies over yellowish brown to gray-brown. The stipe is yellowish to yellow-green.

    The gills are white to white-grey, sometimes with brown speckles. The spores are amyloidic and have a length of 8 to 10 micrometres and a width of 4 to 5.5 micrometres.
