Section Colliniti again. This group needs to be studied very methodically in the Midwest the way I do it in California. Otherwise it will be endless guessing.

There is also C. cylindripes Kauffman that is my ambition to free from the slavery of unfair synonymy to other things. I have a strong suspicion that we collected it with Dan Molter in So. Ohio two years ago – I have the dna, but the proof will require examining the type collection…

Walt, as you see I am not entirely thrilled with putting species names – I find absolutely no glory in that, particularly when it is 99% sure that they are misapplied. We have been through that conversation before. This also applies to the previous obs. Of C. trivialis, which I simply know not to be (despite being somewhat close).
