I understand… I do keep dried herbarium specimens of everything I find!!! I’ve just lost most of my prints from these and others from back then as I sent them all out.

Keep in touch!

In the future, can you save collections along with the prints? You unfortunately can’t identify them from spores alone, cystidia on the gills is quite important too. If you ever have specimens I can try to work them up, but I’m not very fast at scoping dried collections…
And I’m not trying to say these are not P. cyanescens, just that it could be something else as well. :)

I don’t have the pictures…

Long story short I’ve sent out at least a couple hundred prints matched w/ pictures over the last year or so…

Noone has ever contacted me claiming that my “P. cyans” were not P. cyans, besides claiming that they’re another active Panaeolus species like P. cambo, etc. (Bloodworm did the microscopy on many of my “P. cambo” stuff)

I have recently been contacted by a couple individuals who would like multiple prints matched with MO#s this summer for research… so hopefully after we figure out the differences I can go back and delete these and post new MOs with microscopy and much better pictures (I switched from digital to DSLR w/ multiple lenses)

These prints are most likely states away from me, if not across the ocean somewhere haha…

cheers :)

You say there is microscopy? Can you please post it? I would be highly interested in seeing this. :)

These photos are a part of a huge library that I just now transferred over to this computer…

These were in fact cyanescens (I have a photo of after w/ all my finds), besides maybe one or two specimens that were Pan paps

The P. cyans here in south FL vary in size and shape… so this summer I’ll be going back to the same place and getting better pictures/prints and will send them out to microscopists… as they’re obviously not all cyans.

the ones in this picture have been proven to be P. “copelandia” cyans by microscopy

These pictures from just above are not very useful, also they are not all P. cyanescens…
