Recognized by sight: Hard to tell these by sight, but the hair looks too short for A. polytricha, fruit bodies are not reticulate like A. delicata, its definitely not A. mesenterica, and the rosaceous color suggests A. fuscosuccinea.

I still haven’t seen a good key for/comparison between

A. auricula-judae
A. cornea
A. fuscosuccinea
A. polytricha

other seemingly valid taxa (according to IF) include A. sordescens, A. americana and A. peltata. Who knows where those fit in. I’ve never seen so much as a picture of any of the three.

Dennis’ Fungus Flora of Venezuela splits A. fuscosuccinia and A. polytricha by hair length (the difference being a matter of micrometers), but that’s an old text. What/who is the modern-day Auricularia authority??
