How is this different from the southern form of B. subglabripes? I noticed that the amount of “red pruinosity” on stipe is a highly variable parameter in both species, and other than that they look almost identical. See my observations Nos. 55018, 73649 and 73650. I would appreciate a comment from you (it could be a personal communication, if you desire). Thanks.
