Just glance-reading… the puffballs belong in Agaricaceae, but Leucopholiota decorosa may need to find a new place to live. It makes me wonder about the use of molecular analysis as a means of classification. If two separate evolutionary sequences (trees?) result in otherwise similar organisms, then are these organisms really all that different from one another?

Lycoperdaceae depreciated?
