Do I have a duplicate image (an image from this observation being used in another obs??). I’ll look again

Edit: Hmmm, I never saw a duplicate, not sure what was going on, thanks for looking through these though…

no, they’re not, at least not by my definition of the name Duplicate, though seeing identical images used in two separate observations does give the impression of identical information being duplicated into another observation. I would suggest including only those images that directly pertain to a given observation, while including a reference to any related observation(s) in the ‘Notes’ section.

my $0.02

edit: it looks like whatever images were once used across two separate observations have since been relegated to their respective collection dates. whatever kind of confusion was present before appears to have been completely cleared up. carry on.

Are they still duplicates if they are collected at different times? Same log, but these are all separate collections…

New microscope?

Or new camera on the scope?

I really like the pics!

Hesler made 18 of 26 collections of “R. rhododendri” in the UT herbarium, many of them say “on humus/fallen leaves and twigs in deciduous woods”…
I would not describe the collection I’ve made here as particularly sticky.

I am not sure as I do not know this species. Bessette & Fischer state that the fruiting bodies are very sticky.

Is this species specific to Rhododendron? There is no Rhododendron in this area.
