that the good folks doing DNA analysis of mushrooms in PA put this one on their list of things to do. Otherwise, it might be premature to call this chrysopepla.

We at this time have no PROOF that it is chrysopepla vs asprata other than in Quebec and along the east coast, nor do we know if asprata actually occurs along the east coast as well, and just wasn’t part of that four specimen sample size.
