Mitrula elegans is a Berkley species and listed as uncertain in Index fungorum. I found it in SEAVER were it is a synonym to Mitrula phalloides, which again is a synonym to Mitrula paludosa. So I think we speak about the same fungus :-))
What concerns Mollisia specimens, I always am interested in collections (if they don’t concist of only a few fruitbodies). I could see same specimens from HUH herbarium and Donald Pfister also send me one or two. That’s all I saw from America up to now.
Ciboria rufofusca in the european sense is restricted to cone scales of Abies alba. Has it the same ecology in your area?
If you are interested in Mollisia material from N. America I am sure that we can oblige you.
As to the other species with this Mollisia…the Mitrula is elegans and the cup with a sclerotium is Sclerotinia veratri. These species are well studied by mycologists in the area every year. There is a Ciboria (rufofusca) found in that same area, but it’s not in my photo.
In Europe this would be probably Mollisia revincta, as it is the very most common Mollisia on herbaceous stems. A pity that no herbarium specimens exist, as my knowledge to American Mollisia species is much limited and do really need a progress …. – The fungus with the yellow head on a white stalk in front of the photo is Mitrula paludosa, the stalked cup-shaped brown ones are a Sclerotiniaceae, probably a Ciboria spec.
and probably more!
Very cool photo! I think I see three kinds of fungus in that shot.
Those are really nifty.
…they grow in a semi-aquatic environment on rotten corn lily stalks. NOT the same species of Mollisia (on wood) that was collected in the same general area by Doug Smith.
