C. sulcipes and C. speciosa are listed as separate species on indexfungorum.org, which I recently started using, but I’m not sure they are always up to date. I also came across this document at http://www.mycosphere.org/pdf/Mycosphere_7_9_13.pdf which is more recent and seems to refer to them as distinct species

it was my understanding

Danny,

Is there a way to tell C. speciosa from C. sulcipes based on macroscopic characteristics or does C. sulcipes simply not occur in PR?
