Recognized by sight: Could be Xeromphalina campanella (with dark brown base of stipe), Xeromphalina tenuipes (orange stem); or Zeromphalina kauffmanii (reddish stem base). Necessary to see stem base to identify these. Based on 2nd photo I’d lean toward X. kauffmanii.

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.

Thank You!

I always forget about this genus.
The bases were rusty reddish.
