Based on microscopic features: note from Sallie Tucker Jones: “The Scutellinias I took home on a 7-inch piece of wood were indeed, scutellatas, as far as I went – physical features, including size, color, hair length and patterns. The spore size was also consistent with S. scutellata.”

that if Flaxton got a look at micrographs of this material, it would not turn out to be S. scutellata, but some other species.

No disrespect meant to Ms. Tucker Jones. I only wish to emphasize the degree to which the genus is much, much more difficult than most give it credit for, and the degree to which NA “S. scutellata” collections in particular are seldom that.
