On forest floor/litter at base of young fir in an old-growth Eastern hemlock stand

nrRNA sequence inconclusive: >99% similar to vouchers identified as H. incarnulatum, H. velutipes and H. crustuliniforme.

Distinguished as H. incarnulatum by cheilocystidia apex width (6.4 uM average of 20 measurements) and by growth with sphagnum under conifers.
