link didnt contain any helpful macro info except I think i think it mentioned a chemical test that could be done. Anyhow… seems as though they are hardly discernable even with DNA. The picture is interesting, looking like it was shot with old Kodacrome film!

I learned this species from the late Wm. Bridge Cooke. Tom Volk does not recognize it from North America. I think it is the same species as http://mushroomobserver.org/30803?q=42gX. Irene has a link there to a technical article. Bob’s photo was taken near my location.

I dont have any books containing these, and understand these may be European anyway, the underside being yellow reflects G. pfeifferi. I guess there is a scratch test you can do?? Also, looks more typical to have maple as a host…
