I didn’t retain it. However I collected it on a field trip from which many of the collections were being vouchered for sequencing. I think it likely, but not sure, that this was selected for that project. At some point I may have access to the information that results. If so I’ll follow up here.

suggests populicola. You could check the spores if you saved them, because they don’t have to grow on Populus.

Ok,

but you must always consider that there could be not yet known species waiting for discovery :)

Assuming this is a Flammulina, there is only one other reasonable option from the four species of Flammulina in North America. Flammulina populicola is apparently macroscopically indistinguishable from velutipes, differing in growth on or under Populus, shorter, wider spores, and different shape of cells in the pileipellis. These were on unidentified wood, but I don’t recall seeing Populus trees nearby. They may not look typical, but I think they fall within the range of this variable species.

Looks strange for F. velutipes.

I think it is some other Flammulina.
