I concur that this is not “old sp. 17.” We have accessioned the material you sent.

Very best,

Rod

Martin, I think the one in your link is “old species #17.”

I find lots of old #17 on a sloping lawn on my ptoperty. I have already posted a few new obses this year.

The fragile volval sac on this type is generally buried deeply, 1"-2", and difficult to excavate.

The one seen here in 100142 has a large durable volval sac that was not completely buried. Habitat is similar to the old #17s I collect, mowed grassy area with oak nearby.

I recently found what seems to be yet another type (species?) growing in the same area as all the old 17s. This one had a lighter color and was not buried very deeply.

I am pleased to see this and the previous observation. This one in particular looks different from the one I was looking at last year.

I don’t remember seeing the volval cup – quite different. Do you call the previous observation the same or not? I will look more carefully this year – if we ever have any rain that is!

You seem to be getting a series of interesting things in your neck of the woods.
