I spoke too soon, make that 5 species… See observation 19885, obs 65857 (Can be annulate), obs 130970, here & I have one more which I will upload microscopy for soon(ish). And these are all European names, I’m not sure if they will last once they are subjected to DNA examination.

Haphazardly would be my advice that these are an edible species. I was curious of the new names. Actually prolly new to me cause I’m not a complete know it all. Although I try. I bet I’m right though. Did you keep a type collection to study?

There are at least 4 different annulate Pholiotina species in CA, its not right to haphazardly call them all P. rugosa.

I don’t think

it’s proper to apply a species name until I get some microscopy done.

I’m a little confused. Can someone help me understand. I remember these as Pholiotina filaris. Then I thought they were renamed to Conocybe filaris. Am I to understand these are now Pholiotina rugosa? Am I correct or am I thinking of something else?
