Observation 156854: Xeromphalina campanella group

When: 2013-12-31

Collection location: Flat Creek Nature Area, Peachtree City, Georgia, USA [Click for map]

Who: Benjamin Dion (benjamindion)

No specimen available

Notes:
On Conifer, specifically Pinus. I’m still not familiar with the Pines here in North Georgia, but I know Loblolly Pine borders the wetland area that I was in, and basically, from my observation, serves as a boundary between the upland and wetland ecosystems. Sweetgum trees are also present around the pines.

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.
