about this observation:


This is probably the same …
which is Clive’s specimen photo here I believe …

That material has a sequence that is close but not conspecific with Elsa’s Netherlands material of C. pulverulenta (petasiformis).

C. pseudogranulosa looks like a potential candidate, although there are currently no deposited sequences of that and I didn’t note roughened spores."

I think we should limit the ID to genus, since New Zealand may only have a few specific species. It could very well be C. pseudogranulosa, and I do remember the photo from Taylor’s slide show which you are referring and it looked quite similar. Though it would be good to know which species grow in NZ. I’ll link Else here, maybe she can bring a verdict.
