That name is commonly misapplied in California for C. albofragrans. The C. luteoramillatus was described from Michigan and remains a bit of a mystery. Moser and Ammirati were not sure what it is and based on the limited material it was based on, I also wonder what it really refers to. Have to ask Joe, or the Niskanens, if they sequenced the type.
