Proposed Names

6% (2)
Recognized by sight: The species concept of Agaricus (Panaeolus) cinctulus is based on a drawing made by Bolton in 1791. No type collection exists. Since it is not possible to know whether Bolton’s species was Panaeolus subbalteatus, P. olivaceus or P. fimicola, I consider Panaeolus cinctulus to be a nomen dubium.
Based on microscopic features: The gill faces need to be checked for sulphidia; the presence of these would indicate that it is probably Panaeolus fimicola.

Seriously, got any more information on the sequence? Like how does it compare with P. olivaceus or P. fimicola sequences? How about other species? Maybe you could post the actual sequence here with the corresponding observation even! :)

Yes Byrain.
