I’ll pass this time.

I know you’re on the look out for interesting things.

Very best,

Rod

Well…

I encountered two immature specimens and since this is uncommon to the area and it’s been so dry I made a conscious decision not to harvest either. As I was brushing the sand from the cap of one, I realized it wasn’t firmly rooted and pulled it out to find that the stem had separated from the volva (I did some reconstruction for the photos). So I have a specimen that is lacking a base, and probably isn’t developed enough to produce mature spores. You’re welcome to it if you like.

Interesting, Eric.

I see you didn’t get a herbarium specimen?

Very best,

I had not heard of this drab colored caesar. Have you found it before?
