The response is very positive this evening. Which is great. If you have a bit a pie slice of cap with well-preserved gills that you could spare and can supply the locality information and date of collection in detail, I’d be very interested to see if we can get DNA from the material so saved from last year. If we can’, maybe I will be able to give you some feedback about drying and preserving.

If you check the “changes by users,” you’ll see several conversations about the project with regard to citrinoid material and also some broader aspects of what we’re looking for.

See, for example MO #109096.

Also, if you see any material of Limacella, then think of the little group in Roosevelt, NY. We are continuing (with no stopping date at this point) our attempts to get a handle on the North America species of that gooey genus.

Very best,

Ok, I’ll definitely do that this year. We should be making a trip down to Louisiana this fall and I’ll collect some more. They were everywhere down there last year… I actually saved the best specimen from last year and dried it. I might attempt some microscopy on it soon..

If you find this again in 2013, …

If you find this again in 2013, it would be great if you could dry it and post on MO about it.

This year there is a project to obtain “citrina-like” specimens from as much of North America as possible, for DNA analsysis.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss
