almost certainly represents a species complex. Too many aerially rhizomorphic Marasmii separated by too many oceans for them all to be the same. Got some good names lined up for Malagasy material, should any any of those prove to be unique. One rumor has it that the lot of them would be more appropriately called Gymnopus
