than what I have considered to be A. elongata.

There is usually no orange in the cap of A. elongata

However, I really don’t know what to expect if we set up a program to attack sequencing of the “flavoconia group.” The similar groupin in East Asia is said to contain multiple probable species, but I don’t think any results have been published or sequences posted to GenBank.

It’s a matter of time, I guess.

Very best,

In the second photo, I think I see the annulus still in place covering the gills. My guess is that this is a species in the flavoconia-elongata group of sect. Validae.

Very best,
