where they just can say that for the identified (or identifiable) MO observations they should follow Index/Species Fungorum?

Wow, beautiful specimens! I have a question. Have you ever found a specimen that was confirmed p. semilanceata, although the gills were a cream, light pale color? Also, is the margin of the cap turned in 100% of the time? Or is the occasionally an odd one with a deformity with an out turned margin? Thanks!
