if you would be willing to send some of this collection to me, I would be very pleased because, in my herbarium, I have no collection of this species from central Canada.

Very best,


Small size in this species is common.

I’m sure the species is mycorrhizal, but I have definitely seen mycorrhizal species growing in very rotten wood. I assume that their hyphae penetrates to the soil to make a connection with a host tree.

Very best,


I’ve found a few of them

that it is a new material.

interesting to me all grow on wood or wooden material
and they are quite small

This is new material today, Eva?

It certainly looks like frostiana.
