X. campanella indistinguishable from X. enigmatica without mating studies or DNA

Xeromphalina campanella can be distinguished from X. enigmatica only by mating studies or DNA sequencing. They’re effectively identical in macroscopic features, microscopic features, chemical features, geographic location, and substrate preference.

Went back today and though the host was very decomposed, I’m very nearly positive it was a conifer.

I’m not sure. I was just excited to have recognized the genus and didn’t realize it would be important for species level ID until I returned home. I’ll be back within the next two days to check, though.
