I think you were saying that P. gracilis doesn’t get little margin fibers – seeing as how the mushrooms in this obs have fibers, can you propose a new name for them?

PS – Trying to get a better sense of this genus – is it from experience that you say that P. gracilis is bare-margined, or is there a reference that explicitly notes that?
