Your description is interesting, but identification of fungi over
the internet is pretty difficult unless you can post a visual with
the short verbal description.

Dr. David Largent is a mycologist at your university, and could 
probably figure this out for you.

If not, my company will do so for a fee.

: - connidia found scattered about in small clusters, but no recognizeable

: - culture is powdery white.
: - meadow soils were likely Histisols.
