Who: MycoStudent

Specimen available

I am a student of Dr. Tom Volk at the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse. Dr. Volk suggested placing this here when we had some difficulty in naming this species. Sorry some of the pictures are a bit blurry, I’m planning on bringing a better camera to lab tomorrow to get some better quality images.
