and rather impractical to run DNA for every morel in dispute.

we found lots of brunnea (or could they be Mel-8??!) as well as snyderi this past weekend up at the OMS foray, and even an apparently unnamed blonde. Wanna run that one, Alan? Could be an unnamed species!

I have it here with me.

but apparently morpho identical to brunnea.
