I plan to add info on all observations posted to help fellow observers make educated observations. I have already added info for this observation if anyone has any comments to add. If I happen to add more next year; pics will be taken on site

I’m glad you are taking an interest. You are finding some good stuff. If the photos are decent it gives us a chance to help you out. Apologies again.

I wansn’t able to take photos when in the field. I agree the photo doesn’t give very much information. I was going to give a description of the speciman sometime soon. I took a detailed description when I first collected it. There is no need to be rude.

What do you expect with this photo

What possible use is this observation?
The photo is simply terrible and there is no written description of the mushroom. If indeed it is a mushroom. If you just wrote a sentence saying " I saw something on the ground" it would convey more information.
