the color reminds me of Serratia, a bacteria that forms red colonies.

got agar plates at work/school? why not see if you can grow this…?


the annulus on that one fruit body also looks to be rotting. got cap shots, too?

can you tell us some more about Mycogone? I understand that a species of Mycogone is occasionally collected on Amanita caesarea in Europe, but I know blessed little about it.

What a neat bunch of pictures Darvin.

Very best,

Is that a fungus infecting the mushroom or is something else involved?
