Observation 4714: Xeromphalina campanella group

When: 2007-11-01

Collection location: Howarth Park, Santa Rosa, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Debbie Drechsler (debdrex)

No specimen available

Notes:
I suspect that these are X. campanella, but am not sure of the wood they’re on. I’ve watched them fruiting on the same old log for two years. ID’d based on the cross-veins between the gills, the gregarious habit on wood, orange gills, white spores, and orange hairs at the base of the stipe.

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.
