This tiny orange mushroom was growing from a mossy mound that I think was a well-rotted old pine stump. (White or red pine, I couldn’t venture a guess.) It was in Zone 24 quite close to those logs.

X. campanella indistinguishable from X. enigmatica without mating studies or DNA

Xeromphalina campanella can be distinguished from X. enigmatica only by mating studies or DNA sequencing. They’re effectively identical in macroscopic features, microscopic features, chemical features, geographic location, and substrate preference.
