I’m not sure, Ron. All the “sp-T36” I have seen had a much yellower disc…

and somewhat stronger marginal striations. I expect that we will start to get DNA from the “sp-Txx” series mushrooms later this year. At that time, I hope that I’ll have more data than I presently have on the WAO site.

Very best,
