Recognized by sight: “Collections identified as A. delicata are found to be polyphyletic and distributed in four clades. Variation in the presence or absence of a medulla layer in some species, previously a key morphological character, has made it evident that additional characters are required to reflect the genetic diversity in the genus. A new taxonomic character, the schizomedulla, is discussed and shown to distinguish two novel species, A. subglabra and A. scissa, from the morphologically similar species A. delicata. A reticulate, merulioid hymenial surface can no longer be considered a character unique to A. delicata. Furthermore, ITS data from the voucher specimen from which the genome of A. delicata was produced indicates this species is A. subglabra.”

Hi Amanita Virosa,

Thanks for the ID, it looks like a good match. What do you think of the other “Campanella sp.” I posted? It was exactly the same in terms of morphology, colour of spores, etc, but the colour was completely different, as can be seen here: http://mushroomobserver.org/52208?q=1dJx
