both suggest the North American taxa that are similar to the European A. crocea. At this point I have two provisional names floating out there — A. pseudocrocea and A. americrocea. We are exploring whether molecular work can help us sort this out. If your material can be dried, I think it would help us in getting a better understanding of what’s going on. Also, we have very little relevant material from the Carolinas.

Very best,


Very cool.
