There’s other observations for this species throughout the northeast, this might be the most southern observation for it on MO. I’m curious if it occurs further south.

nice documentation, Christine!

You go, girl!

I’ve encountered this species three times now so it seems common enough, but I seem to have trouble getting really good field photos of it. Next time I see it I’m going to really spend alot of time setting up the shots.

are all from the same fruit body, a single collection, the images of the teeth are 40 times magnification to demonstrate that there really are teeth rather than pores. The black staining on the teeth creates the illusion of pores, but if you zoom in enough on any of the photos, the teeth are evident. Also, the spores are very small 2.5-3.5 × 1.0-1.5 which is also consistent with the description for M. adustum.
