0/1 bp off the European material

This material is 0/1 bp off the European material of C. mucosus. I have sequenced multiple collections from SPSP, the Oregon Sand banks and Sierra Nevada under lodgepole pine. It likes two needle pines. At this point of our genetic understanding, we have no reason to consider it a different species.

I guess everybody could be right here,

But it is a short jump between Shore pine and Bishop pine, both physically and genetically.
Don’t they share many of the same mycorrhizal species?
However, I suspect Noah has other reasons for his doubt.

We do get

C. mucosus here; under Shore Pine. Almost identical match with European sequences.

This is probably not it though…

it could mean that we don’t actually GET mucous here.

Irene, yes that blue is real

on the young fruit-bodies.
Apparently that characteristic is common for our local version of C. mucosus.
Doesn’t mean that it’s a direct match however.

Is the blue veil for real and not just in the picture?
Then it’s not mucosus.
Could be closer to mucifluus. I would have called it that in my area…
