Diagnostic Description:

“Based on previous single spore culture studies of Mounce and Macrae (1938) and applying phylogenetic and population-genetic species concepts, we propose that F. pinicola sensu stricto is restricted to Europe, that North American Clade A is F. ochracea, and that two new species are represented by North American Clade B and the Southwest Clade, which remain to be named. This study contains insufficient data to determine the validity of the subclade within the Southwest Clade in the coalescent species tree. More data should be collected from specimens in this geographic region to help answer this question. Additional morphological and anatomical work is needed to uncover characters that are effective in separating these four species in the F. pinicola complex.” Haight (2016)1
