this https://nature.berkeley.edu/brunslab/papers/vellinga2007.pdf . Looks like it may represent the same research seen in the link provided under the “sect. Confragosae” proposal. I quickly previewed but didn’t notice mention of “Tubaria sect. Furfuracea.” The authors do mention the “Tubaria furfuracea complex.”

No spore print on this one, and I don’t believe the pleurocystidia are cheilocystidia or basidia – but I can’t be 100% certain at this point in time. This collection shows hygrophaneous pileii, and that may guide this collection’s identification a little bit. I lean towards T. Furfuracea rather than T. Conspersa, but I’ll have to do some further cheilocystidia comparisons once I have better WIFI.

Has any mycologist conducted a study proposing Genus Tubaria sect. Furfuracea?

Spores look like Tubaria.

Did you record a spore print color, Image Sharer? Most of the exannulate Tubaria that get posted on MO are IDed as T. furfuracea. But I wonder if some may be T. conspersa… assuming this name actually represents a species different from furfuracea.

Variably shaped cheilocystidia… elongate, some curved, subcapitate. Actually, a few of them look to be capitate. Except for the truly capitate ones, these match what Champignons du Quebec says about the cheilocystidia of both furfuracea and conspersa. (I believe I have observed capitate cystidia on the gills of Tubaria.) Wondering if the photo labeled “pleurocystidia” may actually show a basidium/basidiole or a cheilo? C du Q says furfuracea has no pleuro, and does not mention pleuro in the description of conspersa.

The microscopy photos are much prettier than your current thumbnail, and they are likely better indicators of ID. I’d move one them to the top.
