A sequence of the “proposed fungal barcode” gene from this observation…

Thanks for the material, David.

We have recieved this material and accessioned it to Rod’s Herbarium. We have scheduled it for DNA sequencing.

Sometimes when the color is particularly yellow-brown….

and the UV remnants fall off the cap, it can almost look like sinicoflava…except for the lack of umbo on the rhacopes types.

Rod, these are all preserved and stored separately. Eventually, after I make additional Vaginatae collections, I’ll mail these to you.

B1, B2, C1, C2, D2, D3 labels are under respective photos.

I do think that there may be more than one species here.

There do seem to be cap color differences among the rhacopoid species.

We have images of sp-V03 that show a cap that is more yellow-tan than brown. Our darkest cap colors seem to be most likely to be sp-T01.

I think I came to observation before you were finished with it because I couldn’t find the A, B, and C notations with the photos.

Very best,

Rod
