I do think this could be A. flavorubens but the field notes and photos I have of this are not very good.

I didn’t notice any staining but I may have overlooked it. These will be sequenced by Vinod Vijayakumar at Ohio State, but I’m not sure how useful the loci he’ll be sequencing will be for determining what species this is.
