Recognized by sight: “Collections identified as A. delicata are found to be polyphyletic and distributed in four clades. Variation in the presence or absence of a medulla layer in some species, previously a key morphological character, has made it evident that additional characters are required to reflect the genetic diversity in the genus. A new taxonomic character, the schizomedulla, is discussed and shown to distinguish two novel species, A. subglabra and A. scissa, from the morphologically similar species A. delicata. A reticulate, merulioid hymenial surface can no longer be considered a character unique to A. delicata. Furthermore, ITS data from the voucher specimen from which the genome of A. delicata was produced indicates this species is A. subglabra.”

pictures, although I do have the specimen, dehydrated. I’ll hold onto it if you’re interested.

this looks considerably different from any A. delicata I’ve seen. there appears to be intervenosity in between some distinctly gill-like ridges as opposed to the anastomose/honeycomb pattern on the classic A. delicata.

any more pictures? microscopy?
