The material is typical of A. ravenelii in having fibers radiating out from the warts that are connected to the pileipellis (and, through the pileipellis, to the flesh of the cap).

Thanks for asking for clarification.

Very best,


Are you saying that A. ravenellii typically shows that

and this specimen does not, or that this obervation, as is typical for A. ravenelii, shows the material.

I checked the warts under our dissecting scope and, typically for ravenelii, the area around the warts shows fibrillose matted material connected to the pileipellis.

The material is accessioned in our herbarium. I hope to have this sampled for sequence in the near future.

Very best,
