I have a feeling that it has been sequenced by the UBC mycologists in their Edible/Poisonous mushroom project. I sent a note to Prof. Mary Berbee, who may have some results of that project already. I have put you on the cc: of that email and I will keep you posted. All the best in 2018 to you and to all the MO users who read this comment! Adolf

Do you have the sequence for this?
