Comments
Trichoglossum hirsutum is one of several black earth tongues that occur locally. All require a microscope for positive identification. Velvety hairs on both the stipe and fertile "head" are the primary distinguishing feature of Trichoglossum species. This character separates the genus from Geoglossum, whose species have a relatively smooth surface, but are otherwise similar in appearance.
