(RET 611-1, nrLSU seq'd.).
This species is known from a single collection in a
survey area that has been visited multiple times
per year for several years.
Its prominent, robust umbo is quite similar to
such species as A.
With these taxa and others, the present taxon shares
an uncommon 5'-motif for the nrLSU gene.
A list of taxa of sect. Vaginatae from which

Each spore data set is intended to comprise a set of measurements from a single specimen made by a single observer;
and explanations prepared for this site talk about specimen-observer pairs associated with each data set.
Combining more data into a single data set is non-optimal because it obscures observer differences
(which may be valuable for instructional purposes, for example) and may obscure instances in which
a single collection inadvertently contains a mixture of taxa.
