T. brumale in Europe is small and cute. I’ve seen collections from the midwest that really look very close but …. they lacked the crystal incrustations that T. brumale is suposed to have and the spores were just a bit different soooo …. maybe.
Thanks, Dennis, for the explanation! Does it mean that T. brumale doesn’t grow in North America?
Actually Tulostoma beccarianum has a tubular mouth. the brazilians have misapplied the name. See Altes and Moreno article in Mycotaxon (48):223-229, Tulostoma beccarianum Bresad. the correct name for Tulostoma simulans Lloyd.
No the picture looks like a good north american T. beccarianum which is bigger than T. brumale although they tend to merge a bit. Smith called T. simulans the american brumale.
so you went eyeball to eyeball with them, Eva! A serendipitous ooops.
What size were these? Brumale are quite small (6-7 mm in diameter), with a tubular mouth and spores 3.5-4 micrometers.
Beccarianum are twice as big at 12-18 mm, with a fibrillose mouth and larger spores: 4-5 micrometers
Tulostoma key here:
I fell down the sandy slope
There was about 7 stickig out of the sand
is this different from Tulostoma brumale?
Tulostoma are similar to truffles on a stem. It’s not a great big stem, but a stem nonetheless. My neighbor got a species of Tulostoma to grow in his backyard by transporting some fine Columbia River silt from near The Dalles. Next year: Tulostoma!
