That is why I asked, all the Tubaria keys I have seen haven’t been very useful. I have just been using Tubaria since I do not really understand what characteristics would include/exclude T. furfuraceae. From personal experience, some collections seem to have more or less veil, different pileus textures, and are smaller or larger. I have seen some unusual structures from the few collections I have scoped (img 199722), but then again I don’t have any useful literature to compare to…

features that would make it not in this group

“Group” on MO isn’t a formal term (C. Schwarz, personal communication), so something like

characters laying significantly outside the range of collections agreed to be T. furfuracea, or a cryptically distinct relative

I hope/think that “group” doesn’t demand monophyly.

Regardless of what the obs should be called now, other species suggestions?

What makes this the T. furfuraceae group? What features would make it not in this group? Or is it just because its a Tubaria?
