I’ve been having some… problems with the scientific literature on R. trichocarpa.
Does anyone know:
which of the two taxonomic claims are correct: “easily separated from all Californian lookalikes by its long whitish/yellowish hairs” or “can only be IDed from spores; the hairs are non-diagnostic”?
Whether the purplish dots that form around sporophytes turn green in deep shade?
How to recognize unfertilized females without resorting to a microscope?
Whether fertilized females remain fertilized after entering drought dormancy (and then rehydrating)?
