Hi Antonio,

     Even if they are genetically identical, there could well be one or more epigenetic changes (which could result in the morphological changes).  How significant are the morphological differences?

In the same locality i have trees of a species, belonging to a genre very
studied, that are morphologically different. Among them a group has the
pollination in January-February and the other in June-July so that crosses
are exceptional. But genetically are identical, i suppose that it has not
found the good marker. I have to consider them as a species or as two,
which? I would describe a new one?
