Many other taxa

Her sequencing found many other conica-like taxa in NA, but not H. conica s.s.

I don’t know what has been included in Lodge’s sequencing, but there is a conica-like taxon that definitely isn’t H. singeri that I’ve seen on a grass lawn in Santa Cruz, and there are reports of similar taxa from the Central Calley and southern California

We could have H. conica in NA, but Jean Lodge says (per. comm.) that she has not found it in any of the NA material that has been sequenced.

We probably also have H. conica (in the true European sense) in urban areas.
Viscidity of the stipe won’t help tell them apart, but paying attention to the typcial color and stature of H. singeri will help make H. conica really stand out.

You don’t need to check how viscid it is anymore. That is a very variable characteristic anyway. H. conica is in Europe and H. singeri is in the USA.

Viscous?

Is that what differentiates singeri, the slimy stalk and cap? Or are there also other signs? These specimens were slippery and I missed that part…
