Yes, i’ll do it.

I am agreeing with a NON-alba ID on the present observation.

And I am referring to the similar blood red staining on both the alba and this observation.

I am happy that you are drying material from the alba observation.

And asked if you might be able to do the same for the present observation.

It’s the blood red staining that particularly interests me in both observations.

Very best,


Wait; what?

I’m confused. It appears you’re posting here about my other ob., the alba one (I just renamed it as alba). There I had said I was drying and asked your address, which you gave.

If you’re discussing this ob., I’d reply:
This observation we’re not calling alba, are we? Unless you think the pictures show more white than they should here, I can say it is a tan cap here. This was found in mixed woods.
Do you reference the other observation we’ve discussed? Or, do you want some of this?

Thank you.

This material and your photograph of rubescens var. alba in the last few days both have shown an very intense red bruising that is unusual in my experience. Did you dry any of the material from this observation?

Very best,
