X. campanella indistinguishable from X. enigmatica without mating studies or DNA

Xeromphalina campanella can be distinguished from X. enigmatica only by mating studies or DNA sequencing. They’re effectively identical in macroscopic features, microscopic features, chemical features, geographic location, and substrate preference.

Alan, I’m just wondering…

how you suspect that the mushrooms in the photo are growing on conifer wood? I suspect you are correct, as there is plenty of hemlock, and some pine, in the area of the obs…. as well as beech, maple, oak, ash, birch.
