Hi Eva,

Please note that these species (I mean M. fumosum and M. rufum) those not exist in my country. I´m based on the description of E. J. Durand that for the color of the former species says “smoky-yellowish-clay-color or tawny”. This together with your sentence “It is Microglosum…but not rufum” (which I know that you know very well) made me believe that is the species foreseen, I see no other alternative.

Thank you
