Very likely X. enigmatica

as the blast results with curated sequences of PNW X. enigmatica from the referenced paper are 99.9%-100% whereas the match with curated sequences of X. campanella from the same area are only 96.4%. According to the paper: “Average ITS base-pair variation within X. enigmatica was 1.52%.” And “Barcode gaps (average percent divergence (Hebert et al. 2003)
among X. campanella, X. enigmatica and X. kauffmanii exceed 3%, often considered an indication of separate taxa (Hughes et al. 2009).”

ITS data make X. enigmatica more likely

Although some of the highest scoring BLAST results are named “Xeromphalina campanella” in GenBank, Aldrovandi et al.1 — shows them to be X. enigmatica. See Comment on Observation 298545.
