Andean Cloud Forest

Xeromphalina campanella normally grows in dense clusters on decaying conifer wood and is known from Europe and NA. In the Wayqecha area, protecting a large area of tropical montane cloud forest, located at 3000 m altitude, I did not see any (possibly introduced) conifer trees and this fungus was not growing in clusters. These facts should exclude Xeromphalina campanella as a possibility.

Basidiocarp small, almost clitocyboid. Pileus depressed, umbilicate. Lamellae decurrent. According to Pegler ‘Agaric Flora of the Lesser Antilles’ Gerronema cyathiforme ( page 106) seems an option here due to the pileus and stipe being reddish brown colored, a pruinose stipe and the lamellae being honey yellow and distant. Unfortunately no micro details are at hand. Compare also R. W. G. Dennis, Fungus Flora of Venezuela and adjacent countries, Plate 8 (18).

How are you identifying this?
