found in almost all soils worldwide. Which is why growing Lentinula edodes (or almost anything else) is so problematic.
It favors calcium-rich sites. In my area, it grows readily on grout in shower stalls. But in almost any area where calcium is present, you will find T. viride.
It really is a pest in cultivating fungus. It outgrows almost anything. And if you add a buffering agent to your substrate bags, it grows on that as well. It hitchhikes everywhere, and is the major reason you must sterilize substrate before starting new cultures.
I didn’t see the other observation. I haven’t seen it on Laccaria before.
is a good name. It is everywhere but colonies are often very small. It never seems to take over. It is the anamorph of hypocrea I think, which I see less often, but those fruitings can be much larger. Both seem more frequent later in the season. It would be interesting to try to grow it in a culture dish. The spores might be the same color in the slides as they appear in situ.

Mushroom Cultivator author Paul Stamets calls it a common contaminant. He also terms is “Forest Green mold”, which seems appropriate.
