in the natural habitat: herbaceous vegetation. There could be buried wood, but the specimens were not attached to any piece of wood.

C.umbonata is parasitic on mosses, especially Polytrichum. Pseudoclitocybe cyathiformis is a saprobe on wood.

No cheilocystidia was observed.

Thus, I think that Melanoleuca is ruled out.

Microscopy added.

Even after microscopy I have doubts between Cantharellula umbonata and Pseudoclitocybe cyathiformis. In fact, I have doubts about the existence or not of clamp connections between hyphae and at the base of basidia and, on the other hand, the values obtained for the dimension of the spores (which were few due to youth):
(8.6) 8.9 – 10.6 (10.8) x (4.9) 5 – 6.1 (7) µm
Q = (1.5) 1.54 – 1.9 (2) ; N = 10
Me = 9.8 × 5.7 µm ; Qe = 1.7
seem to be a bit wider for C. umbonata.
Any help will be welcome.
