Taxonomic notes
Stiger et al. (2000: 256, 258) note that their results based on ITS-2 sequences comparisons showed that S mcclurei and S. quinhonense presented little divergence in ITS-2 sequences. In spite of this similarity, they assume that these are two distinct species. See note for S. phyllocystum.
