When: 2010-09-20

Collection location: Pend Oreille Co., Washington, USA [Click for map]

Who: Drew Parker (mycotrope)

Specimen available

Yes, given the substrate I thought it might be X. Kaufmanii, but the spores didn’t bear this out. According to Scott Redhead there is a record of one growing on a burnt oak log.

Taste was mild.

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.
