T. octopartitum has a compressed club shaped to spoon shaped fruit body. Bessette describes the head of the T. farlowii fruit body as “compressed in the center…” Your collection seems to match the photos/descriptions of G. difforme best. But this looks like a case where microscopy would be required to be completely certain of the ID.
Dave , my observation was based on the habitat I found it in, and the fact that the fruiting body was strongly compressed longitudinaly. The two Trichoglossum species in Phillips did not possess this feature.
I have made only one collection of black earth tongue, and it was not local.
suggest a species without microscopy. But in the full size picture they do look hairy as Trichoglossum.
Is difforme a common species in North America? It’s one of the rarest in Fennoscandia…
rule out Trichoglossum for this collection? The two different genera include some similar-looking black earth tongues.
