Author: (L.) Redhead, Lutzoni, Moncalvo & Vilgalys
Citation: Mycotaxon 83: 38 (2002)
Deprecated Synonyms: Phytoconis ericetorum (Pers.) Redhead & Kuyper, Omphalina ericetorum (Bull.) M. Lange, Omphalina umbellifera (L.) Quél., Omphalia umbellifera (L.) P. Kumm., Omphalia ericetorum (Bull.) S. Lundell, Botrydina botryoides (L.) Redhead & Kuyper
0.5-2.5(3.5) cm, starts flat with incurved margin, depressed or funnel-shaped when old, margin often wavy; “dull cinnamon to brownish, fading to yellowish or straw color or paler as it ages”; smooth, not viscid, margin striate
very thin, pliant, off-white to beige
decurrent, well-spaced; pale yellowish; sometimes interveined
1-3 × 0.1-0.3cm, equal or widened at base, pliant, often curved; pale reddish brown in upper part, yellow-brown to pale brown in lower part, often pale yellowish when old; smooth
7-9 × 4-6µm (basidia usually 2-spored, but can be 1-4 spored), 12 × 8µm from 1-spored basidia, elliptic, smooth, inamyloid
we should change this name to Omphalina ericetorun?
Index Fungorum prefers Omphalina ericetorum instead of Lichenomphalia umbellifera (Esslinger’s preferred name). As this is a mushroom site(you mean Fungorum, right???), not a lichen site, it seems to make more sense to side with Index Fungorum where there is debate.
