DNA analysis resolution

Note that even if sequencing a certain region is fine-grained enough to distinguish species within a genus, that doesn’t mean getting the sequence will give you the right name. That only follows if all species in the genus have been described and associated with a sequence, which isn’t even mostly true for most genera.

Can the DNA sequencing specify down to the species? Or just the genus in general?

Not a leaf. I found it later in a mesh pocket of my daypack with just one mushroom on the wood. I’ll look for the other in that pocket,

Strobilurus species don’t have partial veils AFAIK. This looks more like a Tubaria.
