P.S. Are they rosy enough to be A. fuscosuccinea

in your expert opinion, Brian?

Thanks for the species suggestions, Brian.

I was debating between those exact two species and hoping that you would see my ob. and make the call. I have studied your article “Systematics of the genus Auricularia with an emphasis on species from southeastern United States”, published in May of 2013. Remembering that you and your co-authors indicated in your Comments section of that article, that A. americana could be distinguished (although not as reliably as with microscopy) from its look-alike, A. fuscoccinea, by “its lack of rosaceous or purple hues” — which the two specimens in this ob. clearly DO have.
