| Oudemansiella furfuracea
|The "root" of this mushroom can be as long as the stem.
Current name Oudemansiella furfuracea, formerly known as
Hymenopellis furfuracea and Xerula furfuracea.
Here is what DNA analyses has revealed about this and
other species of this group of Indiana fungi:
"Working list of Oudemansiella/Hymenopellis/Xerula. Five
species based on 40 sequenced collections. Notably off the
list is O./H./X. megalospora and sinapicolor. I have
collections I believe are sinapicolor, but no sequences.
Hymenopellis "sp-IN01" 2
Hymenopellis rugosoceps 2
Oudemansiella furfuracea 11
Oudemansiella incognita 7
Oudemansiella limonispora 21
Megalospora and limonispora have VERY close DNA
sequences, so it is possible some may be separated out with
additional DNA regions. Sinapicolor and rugosoceps may be
the same species based on ITS DNA results?"
