still be something different if it’s a pure hardwood habitat.

And it seems like we have two different species that are called collinitus in Europe.
Emma, your muscigenus sequences are an OK match with a couple of canadian collinitus sequences and one collinitus sequence from Sweden but not the rest..

Thanks for the clarification, Emma.

According to Index Fungorum, C. muscigenus is synonym of C. collinitus. I have ITS data to confirm this. However, this change hasn’t been made in Mycobank. When I sequenced C. pseudosalor, it was mixed up with C. vanduzerensis, so I’m not sure what it is. A little bit more work might need to be done in that area.

pseudosalor looks like another possibility, and there may be others. Yet another group with murky associations.

Another name I have seen…

applied to the violet-stemmed, slimy veiled, brownish-capped Cort is C. pseudosalor. I have used this name in a few of my observations.

Not sure if this obs features a violet tinge on the stipe. First photo appears as such, but other photos seem to show a whitish stipe.

It is my understanding from J. Ammirati and M. Seidl that C. muscigenus is the name for the brown capped Myxacium with the violet tinted stem slime in NA. If not, how does one differentiate?
