    I caught some mammatus today after the storms cleared (beautifully framed by the power lines). I'd have to say there is no confusing these clouds with the proposed asperatus clouds. I'd describe mammatus as having the texture of inverted cumulus clouds while asperatus have a smooth lenticular type texture.

    Not to mention the other differences I posted earlier.

    I'd say that Brian's comment the other day definetly had asperatus clouds in them. Not all of them were though.

    Looks like there was an update to this and the WMO officially recognized it as a new cloud formation.
