This specimen is very typical of the A. solaniolens group.

From genetic sampling extending from eatern North America to Costa Rica (possibly as far as Colombia), solaniolens or something with a pretty much identical nrITS sequence occurs throughout the sampled region.

Given that data and your images, Alan, I’d say that “A. solaniolens group” would be a pretty good preliminary ID for this observation.

Very best,

Rod
