always useful for sightings to contain more info than just a mere photo.

a “no reaction” KOH test is also useful data, altho KOH color changes might be more intrinsically interesting.

with corts, we need all the help we can get to make IDs.

in the case of an unknown cort like this one, the term “rare” might well be applicable, and the easy quick data from a few drops of KOH, only available in fresh specimens, useful.

no color change is also information.

rarely have interesting KOH reactions.
This thing looks like sect. Lanigeri, which I have gotten a sort of dull gray-green from before (cap).

KOH tests?
