Since all three of us have seen what we think to be Cookeina tricholoma in the southern continent, its most likely that we label all that way. Just like any NA species that is studied (to the death) it gets divided after enough scientists have looked at it. More than likely could be 10 different species that look as such with varying characteristics.
but with waterlogging, white balance, etc., anything is possible.
but these seem rather more red than the ones I have seen (which are more orange with creamy white tones to the base)
