Mycenae is a large genus of small saprotrophic fungi which are rarely more than a few centimetres in width. They are characterised by a white spore print, a small conical or bell-shaped cap, and a thin, fragile stem. Most are grey or brown, but a few species have brighter colours. Most have a translucent and striate cap, which rarely has a curved margin. The gills are attached and usually have cystidia. A few of the species exude latex when the stem is broken, while some others are bioluminescent.
