I apologize for the mistyping.

Thanks for pointing out my typographical error. Kind of stressed here. No electricity, no phone, no internet. I’m set up in a coffee house about 12 km from home for the early afternoon.

Very best,

of partial veil hanging down (second photo) is odd for ovoidea in my limited experience. Dr. Bas told me several times that the upper stipe in ovoidea was covered with a thick coat of volval material that could be spread with a knife like a soft cheese. Perhaps, I’m not seeing that hanging material correctly, because I don’t see anything like it in the other photographs.

Very best,
