because I didn’t propose Clavariadelphus sp… I didn’t vote for C. occidentalis, I just voted not likely on C. pallidoincarnatus.

The note is mostly right, occidentalis can be irregular.

This is C. pallidoincarnatus, from type location.

Two questions:
1. What made you prefer Clavariadelphus occidentalis over C. pallido-incarnatus?
2. Is the Note generally correct about which is the widest portion?
