Golden trumpet,Bell Omphalina

Xeromphalina campanella


The fruit body of X. campanella has a small umbrella-shaped cap and a thin brown stalk with yellow hairs at the base. The gills are pale yellow to pale orange. The stalk is thick, dry, yellow at the apex, is dark reddish brown below, and the base has long orangeish hairs. The spore print is pale buff.Xeromphalina kauffmanii resembles the species, but it grows on decaying wood of broad-leaved trees. Xeromphalina brunneola also remembles the species, except for the odor, taste, color of the cap, and by the smaller, narrowly elliptical spores. When the species is young, their caps are bell-shaped. As they mature, the outer part of the cap expands and rises which leaves the center depressed, resembling a navel.


The fruiting occurs in clumps or very dense clusters on decaying logs, stumps, and woody debris of coniferous trees. The species is commonly found in North America. At times, the species almost entirely covers old tree stumps.The species can be found in any wet season of the year.
