Lazlo Nagy has published on this group, so I asked him about my observation and he said "Indeed looks like C. lagopus, if the best blast hit is C. lagopus then I would feel OK calling it that. In our study (Mycologia 2012) we found multiple well-supported clades within C. lagopus, but morphological differences could not be seen, so we did not describe them as separate species.

This collection could represent one of these ‘phylogenetic’ species.
Hope this helps"

Are sect. Lanatulae and subsect. Lanatulae synonymous?
