Id like to give you a call at some point Rod to chat about some of these findings. Can you send your contact info to steve@mushroomfarm.com and let me know a good time to chat?

We got two slightly different forms (haplotypes) of the ITS gene from this and a good LSU

Your Indiana material has been very productive. We have at least three of the four rubescent taxa that we can recognize genetically from your material as well as being able to separate the present species from MO 107668 (which we probably had never seen before).

Thanks so much.

Very best,

for some reason I wrote white volva in the notes, but I meant white partial veil. Now fixed. Another first find for me.
