Both of your points, but agree I have seen other non fungal postings here that help me learn what I DID see in the woods. It’s not like she posted a picture of a orb weaver.

I can agree with that

but still, its not like you can’t have it on both sites. If you want more informed users to be able to confirm/correct your identification bug guide is the place to be. :)

I thought this might be fungal when I first saw it, I thought other users here might be interested to see it identified.

This is mushroomobserver.org, not bugguide.net… This would be the first record of this species in Tennessee at bug guide, I’m certain they would appreciate it if you posted your pictures there. :)
