Naming alternatives

Thanks, Danny, for recommending to run the Favolaschia key (Source: Gillen, Kerstin; Laessøe, Thomas; Kirschner, Roland; Piepenbring, Meike; Favolaschia species (Agaricales, Basidiomycota) from Ecuador and Panama; Nova Hedwigia Band 96 Heft 1-2 (2012), p. 117 – 165). It turned out that an ID based on macroscopic details is impossible. Characters important to distinguish species of Favolaschia are the presence or absence of Gloeocystidia, clamps or not, the number of the sterigmata per basidium, as well as shape, size, and position of acanthocystida and gloeocystidia. A very few seem to have a preference for a certain substrate.

With this observation there would be several naming alternatives, among them Favolaschia gaillardii or Favolaschia cinnabarina. Favolaschia cinnabarina having macroscopic and microscopic features as in F. gaillardia with the following differences: spores (7.5)8– 9(–10) × (5.5–)6–7.5(–8) μm, Q=(1.1–)1.2–1.4(–1.5) (n=25, c=2), broadly ellipsoid to ellipsoid. Basidia (24–)25–35(–41) × (7–)8–9.5(–10) μm (n=13, c=1), rarely with basal clamps. Acanthocystida (9–)13.5–20.5(–24) × (9–)12–17(–18.5) μm (n=15, c=1). Gloeocystidia (17.5–)20.5–36(–41) × (9.5–)12.5–19.5(–20) μm (n=15, c=1). Trama hyphae rarely clamped.

possibly F. cinnabarina

but I would recommend running it through Laessoe’s key first:
