S. imitatus var. imitatus fits within the S. caerulescens clade and S. imitatus var. viridescens fits within the S. ponderosus clade. Therefore, we synonymize S. imitatus var. imitatus with S. caerulescens and S. imitatus var. viridescens with S. ponderosus, and show that the species can indeed be recognized morphologically based on annulus characteristics.
