Observation 14059: Tulostoma niveum Kers

When: 2008-11-10

Collection location: Geneva, Switzerland [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Id’ed by the members of the Societe de Mycologie de Geneve.

Found in the moss on the side of a brick wall, the cap here is about 3-4mm in size.

Went through the keys on these, and this is what came up. There was a question between this and another species, but this species was listed as byrophilous, so that made the id. The comments on the species pointed out that this one was missed by other studies of Tulastoma until that monograph, that no one really looked for tiny guys in among moss, and mentioned how you’re not quite sure what you will find until to you try looking in a different habitat.
