sorry, it was a 99% match with Rees’s paper entitled “Relationships between australian and northern hemisphere Gymnopilus…”

thank you, Ian [edited]…

for being a great member of this website and “community.”

a person who is actually truly trying to learn and observe what is around them is very rare…

instead we have people speculating about what they “think” MIGHT be true…

at any rate…
observation “#139077 [edit]” got very moldy and smells like fish (??). lol. i have no idea why.

ill see if i can stomach the smell and do micro on it. ;)

also, thank you for the opportunity to look at these. it is very much appreciated. i learned a lot and it will help a ton in the future.


It is certainly a bit hard to beat Two +’s. Congrats on the suggested ID and the qualifying match up. Thanks for the relayed info. Makes work fun. kk
