but only a 94% to 96% match with European specimens of O. pyxidata and O. rivulicola (eg. JQ671001, JN944402, JQ671000, U66450, U66451…). This doesn’t look to be either taxon.

pyxidata, not rivulicola

Sequencing of DM7 (observation 215739) retrieved these two species as top matches. The two species seem very similar (macro and spore sizes vary slightly, colour of stipe in comparison to cap, slight differences in stipe texture), however habitat is very different.

rivulicola – mountains, moss in banks of streams or ponds
pyxidata – sandy grasslands (google translation “dune lawns”), alpine, arctic
