for the link, I hadn’t seen that one before!

Here’s another:

But we don’t know the whole truth about the distribution of the different Flammulina species, and it’s probably not permanent either.. I beleive that at least populicola is possible in Wisconsin, if it’s known both from PNW and Scandinavia.

Trying to ID a Flammulina without the DNA tool, is a challenge though..

Only F.velutipes in the Midwest

According to M.Kuo, N.America has four species, but only F.velutipes inhabits Midwest. Other three – F.mexicana, F.rossica and F.populicola – are western species. The rest are all European species. See interesting article on Flammulina here:

Flammulina rossica and Flammulina elastica.

is a genus with several different species, and many are probably still undescribed, because they usually pass as velutipes withouth closer investigation..
This might be Flammulina fennae, usually growing on the ground, but connected to roots of deciduous trees. Other characters are rather distant gills, and a pale cap margin, which is slightly hygrophanous and striate.

Terrestrial and not gregarious, different color.

While it’s possible the mushroom grows from submerged wood, and din’t manage to get many siblings, I encounter Flammulina velutipes here quite often, and this one didn’t look like that at all.
