Any suggestions on the

Any suggestions on the difference between M. pura and M. rosea? Apparently microscopically they are very similar if not identical but looking at them in the field they look rather different (if I am looking at the right ones). For example http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/301365 and this current observation, are they both M. pura or are they different species and if so which one is really M. pura? I don't have any answers to this.
