Notes on Taxonomy: [Edit]

Nomen provisorium suggested by Pilz et. al (2003) based on genetic analysis distinguishing between C. tubaeformis from western North America and Europe/eastern North America (Dahlman et. al 2000). Genetic variation and taxonomy briefly summarized by Trappe (2004), who also provides a thorough analysis of habitat and ecological associations of this western North American C. tubaeformis.
