A book from Paul Stamets, 1993 (Growing gourmet and medicinal mushrooms) 
lists both Hypsizygus ulmarius and H. tessulatus as saprophytes.

It can also be a facultative parasite on dying hardwoods or a true 
saprophyte on dead trees. 

I feel we humans try to label organisms, but the organisms sometimes fit 
inbetween different labels, depending on the situation.
