Observation 88979: Rickenella mellea (Singer & Clémençon) Lamoure

When: 2011-11-19

Collection location: Albion, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Notes:
Found in grass and moss.

These are split from R. fibula in Funga Nordica at least, given by the faded pale color here, not the obvious deep orange you usually see. But I’m not sure if they are different in any other way, and I found these in a patch of moss, just next to another patch full of R. fibula, like 3 feet away… so I’m not sure how or why I get to call these a different species. But I’ll site it as such, just to point out the difference at least.

Here is an ITS tree I made which includes R. mellea and R. fibula.
