Just glance-reading… the puffballs belong in Agaricaceae, but Leucopholiota decorosa may need to find a new place to live. It makes me wonder about the use of molecular analysis as a means of classification. If two separate evolutionary sequences (trees?) result in otherwise similar organisms, then are these organisms really all that different from one another?

Why is the category…

Lycoperdaceae depreciated?
