but I haven’t figured out how to link it. It does come up on line with a google search.
Apparently not a great deal of morphological difference as the title indicates.
There is a mention of light colored stipe and an indication of slightly larger spores, but these were above average in size. But Bart Buyck thought it was either one or the other and I gave C flavolateritus a slight edge based on the above.
