I will also ask Larissa Trierveiler Pereira what she thinks. She is doing great gasteromycetological things in Brazil as well.

C. cyathiformis has been reported from Brazil (Parana, Sao Paulo and Pernambuco).

Compare: Camila R. Alves and Vagner G. Cortez; Gasteroid Agaricomycetidae (Basidiomycota) from Parque Estadual São Camilo, Paraná, Brazil; R. bras. Bioci., Porto Alegre, v. 12, n. 1, p. 27-41, jan./mar. 2014 http://www.ufrgs.br/... AND Baseia, Iuri Goulart. Contribution to the study of the genus Calvatia (Lycoperdaceae) in Brazil. Mycotaxon 88: 107 – 112. 2003

about the presence of C. cyathiformis in Central and/or South America. Even “confirmed” reports of old could be the product of wantonly importing European or North American names. C. rubroflava seems easier to ID by sight when mature, and I know of at least one solid reference to assert its presence in South America:


solid only for the fact that Wright oversaw Rocabado’s work.
