It will probably be helpful in comparing European taxa with North American taxa in the bulbosa-porphyria group. We will probably send samples for DNA sequencing. Thanks for making the material available for us.

Very best,


A. citrina

I had a look and i thought it certainly looked like A. citrina but don’t know enough species to have added it as a potential species. If these interest you at all then they are drying as i type.

How about A. bulbosa?

This is also listed in guides as A. citrina var. alba.
