I think that the ID of this material is more in doubt than Erlon’s suggestions imply.

If Richard still has this specimen, DNA sequencing may help.

Both of the suggestions I made three years ago refer to species with a distinctly olivaceous universal veil, which is missing in this material. Moreover, there is really no evidence to eliminate the possibility that this species falls in section Validae.

Very best,


The spores will separate the two possibilities.
