in the exact same small stream drainage area as this new one obs 167779.

Spore shape for this new obs supports M. elegans.

I agree vjp.

I unsuccessfully tried to get a spore print, and the smash mount I did on a little of the material did not turn up any spores. I was hoping that spore shape may have brought me closer to an ID. I think “Mitrula” is the best name to apply to this collection. Thanks for your input.

have done microscopy on a bunch of Mitrula from Maine this summer and everyone turned out to be M. elegans. Some of the specimens had pinkish hues and “cap” shape varied. I think Mitrula need microscopy for identification.

I looked for spores…

for the pinkish ones, but could find none.

Mitrula lunulatospora seems a good fit for the fatter pinkish ones. The thinner yellow ones were growing nearby in th same shallow pool of water. I think it’s reasonable to suppose that the first two photos may be of a different type than as seen in the third photo.

I’m removing the third photo and making it inot a seperate obs.
