Observation 59390: Campanella Henn.
When: 2010-11-19
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: This looks similar to Campanella I have seen but don’t know of any in OR… It was growing on hardwood and the largest were about 1cm across.

In got to see an unpublished Tetrapyrgos tree today, which also contains whole clades of Campanella and M. candidus. The Tetrapyrgos, Campanella or Marasmiellus of the future will likely be a mix of things for which tetrapyrgoid spores simply represent one extreme of a broader spore shape spectrum.

What’s more, the delimitation of Tetrapyrgos (and thus the description of new spp.) is stifled by the fact that T. atrocyanea, the type species of genus, has not been observed in its fresh state since it was collected in Madagascar and described by Hennings in 1895.

look at all the possibilities here. This is why i love fungus, so much mystery.
Great photo!

sure looks similar.

I wonder how Taylor made his ID determination? And what other possible Campanella species are out there? And if a tropical species can really occur in coastal OR and Northern Coastal California…?

plus I’m not sold on it being Tetrapyrgos subdendrophora, I’ll post that, I collected it on dune grass in Florence as well.

this is an amazingly cool mushroom.

This had a blue-green cast to it when I saw it a day or two after it was collected. The next day I also took some photos of it and it had faded even more to a grayish color.

you were in the ballpark, Noah.

Looks an awful lot like what I collected here: http://mushroomobserver.org/14969

it resembles is Tetrapyrgos olivaceonigra. I’ll scope it soon and post some pics.

Nice images Noah, the anastomosing lamellae are reminiscent of Resupinatus merulioides from Japan as Irene mentioned below, it was recently recorded from New Zealand in 2006 but your specimens here look different.

I think one way to tell if it belongs in Resupinatus would be to check for branching asterostromelloid hyphae or a rameales structure in the upper layer of the pileipellis and a lack of metuloid cystidia in the hymenium, Hohenbuehelia would show metuloid cystidia.

Beautiful picture of a beautiful mushroom

Looks like something from the tropics!
Obs 15366 shows a similar species, but not quite the same..
Microscopy would probably tell if it belongs to Campanella, Resupinatus, Hohenbuehelia or something else.

Wow! Nifty.
