is different, Alain. Individual spores are visible. In this collection (197259) individual spores are not visible.

Glomus and Endogone both have relatively huge spores for fungi. If they were present, they should be visible. Glomus microcarpum has spores that are 25-55 microns wide. Endogone flammicorona has spores 52-120 microns x 42-99 microns. (Source: Field Guide to North American Truffles)

Further, this obs. differs in visibly having at least some locules (chambers). Neither Glomus nor Endogone are loculate. Any chambers present may be caused by mycophagists.

Hello everyone.

Mine is exactly the same as the OBS: http://mushroomobserver.org/191608?q=2VdRW so GLOMUS. Size GLOMUS and tomentous area do not match.

162557 looks like an Endogone, but way out of focus.

This obs. is not Endogone, since the large spores cannot be seen. (Endogone have some of the largest spores in the fungal kingdom. Many can be seen with the naked eye.)

Apparently neither lignicolous nor loculate.

Found on the ground. Fern trees are abundant. The size is about 6 cm.
Looks like observation "Agaricomycetes (162557).

I think, I have exactly the same here, but the pictures are not yet published.
It grows on the roots of WILD FERNS, http://www.aujardin.info/plantes/fougere_femelle.php and HANG ON,JUST AT THE LIMITE OF THE SOIL. Size 1 cm, very white, but quickly becomes BUFF color, and becomes invisible in the jungle. CERTAINLY lignicolous.
The rectangular mark at the center of the first picture is probably the FIXING ZONE on the root.
