attempt spore print. if you can’t get one, throw out crust!

only those which don’t yet have enough information to be confidently IDed.

You are right, Danny

Creating an herbarium does not entitle me to make bad observations, like this one, but I hope to add microscopy in the fall or before. Whatever this is, it looks too thin to have any visible pores. It was collected for the color. I don’t think I have seen it before or since, but maybe it will turn out to be hypoxylon..,

is not even large enough to detect the present/absence of pores.
