Observation 45772: Xeromphalina campanella (Batsch) Kühner & Maire
When: 2010-05-21
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: These were growing on an old log in a conifer dominant area.
The spore print was sparse but they appeared to be white and not amyloid.
The spores were approx. 5.5-6.9 X 2.5-3.4 microns and somewhat oblong.
The stipe was tough and pliant.
Couldn’t see any obvious matches in the usual references.

Re-evalution of my notes

made me realize that Xeromphalina campanella is the logical ID for these.
Initially, I ignored Xeromphalina because I did not see a clear amyloid reaction on the spores. However, the spore deposit was so sparse that a distinct color change was not possible to see and I do recall observing a faint darkening when I applied the Melzers.
