I’m still getting use to the ideas… calling the eastern NA big esculenta look-alikes esculentoides, except for this oddball species prava; and awaiting more info regarding the distribution of M. cryptica.

My own take is this… except for ones that appear to qualify as prava, I’ll call my local types esculentiodes until if/when cryptica is shown to occur in my region.

M. prava

Maybe M. prava would be a better name here? These look a little darker and the pits a little more convoluted than would fit for M. esculentoides?
