Doug, I have sent you an email off line with Jonathan’s email. He sequenced it and is working on Psatharellas at SOU as I indicated below.

If the sequence for this has been found, can you post the sequence here? Or the GenBank number for the sequence? It would good to document local sequences.

I collected samples of this and sent to Jonathan Frank of Southern Oregon University (at his request). He completed a DNA sequence on it and concluded that it most closely matched Psathyrella marcescibilis.
