Recognized by sight: “Cotylidia muscigena is characterised by minute, often deeply longitudinally incised basidiomata, long spores and its connection to thalli of living mosses. C. undulata differs by smaller spores (up to 5 μm) and infundibuliform, not incised basidiomata. C. carpatica, similar in size and typically found in montane habitats, also has smaller spores and its basidiomata are more distinctively flabelliform or spathulate (Huijsman 1954) when compared to the almost infundibuliform basidiomata of C. muscigena. Remy (1964) distinguished C. guttulata L. Remy with biguttulate spores, however Jülich (1984) synonymised it with C. muscigena. Moreau et al. (2008) consider it a form of C. muscigena f. guttulata (Rémy) P.-A. Moreau, Wuilb. & Courtec. In both specimens studied the spores were generally broader than described in the literature (2–2.5 μm in Bernicchia & Gorjón 2010, Vesterholt 2012), the most notably in the BRNM specimen (up to even 4 μm!). However, as other macro- and microscopic characters are in concordance with data from the literature, we somewhat reluctantly assign the discussed specimen to C. muscigena, realising that an additional study may be needed.
