Is not the only Sierran annulate Psathyrella species, see observation 83377 (http://mushroomobserver.org/observer/show_observation/83377?q=9kBY).

Also, does P. ellenae var. yubaensis have a striate pileus margin? It is not mentioned in the description, but is mentioned for var. ellenae and other Psathyrella species like P. longistriata.

thanks thinker
