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.

what do you know it may be wrong that is if you call ceder a conifer….I think it is rotten ceder it looks like it and it was very common …so….you guess

then the only question left is what kind of wood are they growing on? kauffmanii grows on hardwoods and campanella grows on conifers.
the wood almost looks coniferous but its so decomposed its hard to tell at this point. any clues as to the wood type?

strange not seeing them on a stump or log, even though they still seem to be on composting wood.

they definitely look like Xeromphalina genus due to cross-gills inbetween the gill structure.
