… Once you have a proposed genus, it’s good – and challenging – to find out how many species have been published within the genus.


I recommend waiting for more name proposals, but in the interim, you may benefit from using the process of elimination by visual comparison. By clicking on each name listed with visual observations, you can get a grasp of what species it isn’t, and hopefully which one it is.

Note: I just did an IndexFungorum search for Coltricia, and it lists far more species names than MO. You may also add one or all of these missing names to improve MushroomObserver.

Same locale….
