to what I call rufa, but there’s also Spathulariopsis velutipes and something named Spathularia neesii. This genus is in desperate need of investigation, also indicated in GenBank by the many diverging DNA sequences of “Spathularia flavida”.
No one seems to have a good concept of any of these species, and I can’t see that anyone has done any deeper work on them since Mains 1956.

Index Fungorum only has two accepted species, Spathularia flavida and Spathulariopsis velutipes. They have no opinion about the rest, not even rufa.

to S. rufa?

It’s S. flavida in the PNW forest plan sense; a “rare” mushroom…

Strange colour for flavida

S. flavida should be yellow.
