The variety subpicoides also has an almost identical sequence to C. cremeolina type.

Thanks Karl,

Thanks for your comments here, It’s really interesting that these two species produce an almost identical sequence, I have not collected C. cremeolina but looking at the images in your book the macroscopic characteristics look quite different, how do the sequences of these two species compare with that of C. cremeolina var. subpicoides?

Actually, C, iringa produces an (almost) identical DNA-sequence within the ITS region as C. cremeolina, despite some morpho and spore differences. It may be a good idea to keep them separate for the time being, however, pending further examination of other regions. Both (morpho)species are rather common in Nothofagus forests in NZ.
