is needed and these were not scoped. P. delineata appears to be much more common in the Appalachian and foothill areas.

have you also considered P. rugocephela?

When I find these types (E. TN), I usually check the spore sizes, and it always confirms P. delineata. Literature suggests P. rugocephala can only be differentiated from P. delineata by spore size -what’s your experience?
