Growing with or not

All five were growing in a debris-filled through, spread over the distance of not more than 25 cm. I remember that at least two were very close to each other, but don’t remember which two.

I looked at them now and just realized that I lost one of the little ones, probably when I removed them at home from the moss that kept them fresh. They dry out fast and the cap of the remaining little one is noticeably different (whitish). Note that they all have visible rhizomorphs.

For microscopy, I used samples from the largest two (second and fourth in the photo).
