Notes on Taxonomy: [Edit] Brief Description:

..closely related to P. cubensis but can be differentiated by the lack of an annulus and the buff-yellow to yellowish brown, hemispheric to hemispheric-convex pileus without an umbo or papilla. Phylogenetic analyses of ITS, nrLSU and combined rpb2-tef1-α datasets using maximum parsimony and Bayesian inference also indicate its uniqueness. The relationship with P. cubensis is well-supported by molecular data with high support values in all three datasets.
