From what I can gather…

Peck’s subsejunctum is considered a synonym of sejunctum by many mycologists, with the name possibly being used should the NA “sejunctum” proove to be different from the European one.

I know you’re in a better position than I am to differentiate between sejunctum and viridilutescens, but the photographs of sejunctum in the Galli and Riva books look very much like these. How distinctive are these two species? Also I have to point out that to my knowledge there are no confirmed, published, occurences of T. viridilutescens from North America, even though it may likely be here. I guess I’m just curious as to the strength of your opinion that this is viridilutescens. I think maybe Hughes et al may publish something next year on eastern NA and European Trichs, but for now it is likely just a guessing game.

make me think that it’s something in the vicinity of viridilutescens rather than sejunctum.

T. sejunctum is much more yellow than this appears, is the lighting fooling me?
