near misses. I’m glad you decided not to make it your lunch.
The spores (for shape and size) fall into a group that would be confusing if Bas hadn’t sorted out the matters of volval structure and clamps on basidia. Within the last year I blew an ID because I took someone’s word that the warts on a cap were gray (they had gray dirt on them it turned out); and the material got sent off to China under the name Amanita cinereopannosa. Later I heard from Dr. Yang that the DNA did not match the DNA of that species from other collections; and so I put the cap under the dissecting scope only to see (immediately) the white fibrous bases of the warts. I quickly ate a small cartload of crow and will always put Lepidella warts under the dissecting scope when asked for an opinion.
Another good reason to dry collections as vouchers for MO observations: Enjoy stories of mycologists making mistakes. :) …and learn from them. :)
“warts with fibers” are diagnostic for this eastern lepidella sp.? If so, seems like all you would need to make your ID is a hand lens (or dissecting scope).
For some reason this collection was moist when received.
We redried it.
Thanks for sending it.
The sense of animal fur is overwhelming to my eyes.
