Observation 21696: Xeromphalina campanella (Batsch) Kühner & Maire
When: 2009-06-04
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This is an odd one, or rather, two. I found these in Zone 24 close to last year’s Tricholomopsis sighting. At first I thought that might be what these were, though it seemed a bit early for that. But oh, no. These little guys are omplalinoid and have cross-veined gills! They’re also just as orange beneath as above.

Images, in order: thumbnail; specimen 1 habitat (a rotted piece of pine); specimen 1 side view; specimen 1 top view; specimen 2 habitat (a different rotted piece of pine a foot or so from the first one); specimen 2 top view; specimen 2 side view after uprooting; specimen 2 gills.

X. campanella mostly fits, except for one nagging thing — it’s supposed to grow in dense clusters. I found just two, one each on separate pieces of wood.
