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.”
