Bottomland hardwood swamp, adjacent to Mississippi River, in dry “borrow pit” – forest floor was damp but not presently inundated. These tiny mushrooms were growing on a small patch of leaf litter, maybe 20cm x 30cm, and I didn’t see them anywhere else.
Borrow pit is the pit from which dirt was removed for the construction of earth embankments. They are periodically inundated, but this one was dry when I visited. Dominant trees include hackberry (Celtis), dogwood, sycamore, red maple. This site is also severely overrun with invasive trees – two species of Ligustrum, and Triadica sebifera (chinese tallow tree).
There has been plenty of rain recently, and the temperature has been unseasonably warm for several weeks.
