Mentioned in Molecular phylogeny and phylogeography of Holarctic species of Pluteus section Pluteus

Undescribed species per Else Vellinga

I asked Else Vellinga about this, and she said this one is undescribed and has been given the provisional name Pluteus parilis.

She said that there are many undescribed species in this group in California.

Make sure to put this sequence into Genbank so when someone names it they see that it also occurs in Washington and they can use your photos to help write the description.

wow cool!

mushrooms are fascinating

Probably an undescribed species

I made a phylogenetic tree which includes this sequence to see where it falls out. I was surprised to see that the only matching sequence in Genbank is a Hugh Smith collection from Mendocino County, California ( The sequences marked with a crimson dot have Mushroom Observer observations.

I removed the VA specimens from the project

Someone probably typed their number in wrong

some sort of data cross up

If I look at the values for 337908 and 337909, there’s an anomalous entry from Charlottesville, VA

Seems the data got mixed up there.

Anyway I removed the erroneous entries I think

I’m not sure why I have three differing sequences for 59052

I repasted the sequence from the main text file for 59052 received from NAMP


that’s weird

They were all marked with the MO Number of 59052

Sequences are not of Pluteus

The three sequences you attached are Agaricus deardorffensis, Leucoagaricus leucothites and Xerocomellus diffractus.

Multiple sequence results

For some reason, this specimen came back with 3 slightly differing sequences.

I attached them all
