The GB accession number is KX827610.

Thanks again for your generosity.

It will take some time before the sequence is posted for publica access, but the process is started.

Very best,

Habitat Issues

This was found in my “limacella patch” on the property of Weyerhaeuser and they have now closed the gates entirely unless you buy a pass. In addition to that, you are not allowed to remove anything, specifically mushrooms. I have emailed several people to get access and to collect but have not been responded too. I sent a third email this morning that included your newest request for more information, but I’m skeptical that it will matter. They want you to pay and not pick. I am biting my tongue that they are ignoring key elements of reforestation by barring study or the mycology of their money makers.

Last year and the year before they fruited in patches of 10-20. The first year I was late to the party and the second year, right on time. I was hoping year three would be useful to your studies am hoping my efforts bring that into fruition.

Hello, Britney.

Thank you very much for sending this material. Today we got a “proposed barcode” sequence from your collection. It is not one of the taxa that we have identified to date; and we’re going to assign the temporary code “sp-L-OR01” to the species the material represents.

Can you provide additional information on this collection or on the habitat in which it was collected?

Thanks again.

Very best,

Rod

Thanks Britney,

This material has been recieved and accessioned into Rod’s herbarium. We have scheduled it for DNA sequencing.

and both have knowledge of the ways of the Force.

Sava has granted you another sighting in this life, Britney. Be prepared to use the opportunity to your advantage. It may arise at any time. Eat organic and be mindful.

Thanks for the explanation of the slimy matter.

Britney can still see Limacella, these two sightings count as one. :)

In the Lubricae, the slime on the stem is gathered on the surface of … (EDITED)
By: R. E. Tulloss (ret)
2013-09-26 14:54:29 EDT (-0400)

slime supporting hyphae just as on the cap. The “false ring” is formed by hyphae from the cap and the stipe intergrowing and collecting slime (colored in this case) before the cap expands and spoils the arrangement. The cap grows out from the baby stem and arcs downward with the cap margin coiled inward. When a circle on the cap (not the edge of the cap when expanded) touches the stem. The surface hyphae of the two parts intertwine.

So it is very possible for slime from the cap to drip onto the stipe during development of the fruiting body. The development of the cap is fairly well documented for a small number of European species. But you have to pick species of which you can be sure to find more if you want to study organism development…you have to have lots of material so that you can take it apart at different developmental stages.

We’re all learning…all the time. I happen to like it that way….

Very best,

Rod

Looking forward to microscopy
By: Britney Ramsey (Riverdweller)
2013-09-26 14:28:44 EDT (-0400)

Also, the nature of the “glutinous” stem – seems more dry and fibrilous with bits of the veil stuck to the stem. I think the slime is coming from the cap. Just my two cents.

Wow. I go to the doctor and pick up 3 tacos de pollo para llevar, and I come home to limacellas.
By: R. E. Tulloss (ret)
2013-09-26 14:25:06 EDT (-0400)

Then we should wait to assign a section until a little microscopy is done. The sections have some differences in the nature of the gluten retaining hyphae of the cap; so that will be something I’ll want to look at.

Sava, now that Britney has seen the same mushrooms twice, does that mean she’ll never see the species again? :) :(

Very best,

Rod

Glutinous stalks
By: Britney Ramsey (Riverdweller)
2013-09-26 12:49:00 EDT (-0400)

I went back and found it. Stalks are slimy and debris is stuck to them.

great find!
By: Debbie Viess (amanitarita)
2013-09-26 11:42:28 EDT (-0400)

But that stipe on your most expanded mushroom sure looks to be glutinous to me…

Going back!?

Star quality collector you are. Grateful Yoda is.

The stem was not glutinous that I recall. Weather conditions were very wet but the stem itself was dry.

As for altitude and other info…I will go back and try to collect this today. I can’t give you accurate info any other way.

Britney, can you estimate the altitude at which this material was seen? Also, is it an area of temperate rain forest?

Rod

I asked the previous question because…
By: R. E. Tulloss (ret)
2013-09-26 07:35:21 EDT (-0400)

Limacella delicata is the type of section Limacella, the dry-stemmed grouping in Limacella. Hence, if I understood the stem surface, we could give a sectional placement to this beautiful mushroom.

Very best,

Rod

The stem looks more fibrous-floccose than glutinous.

2013-09-26 07:31:04 EDT (-0400)

I’m I seeing this correctly? Is the gluten obvious to sight and touch when the specimen is fresh?

Very best,

Rod

Well, I think I’ve got my quota

I saw them twice in my first mushrooming year, one in Spring, another in Fall, at different places. I felt certain that people have just been overlooking them. Then M. Beug said he’d seen it only twice in his life and that it was my beginner’s luck. It seems he was right.

Well, at least I’ve seen a picture.

sorry Rod

I didn’t know what these were! I’m quite sure I wouldn’t find them again either, having to cover a large measure of ground to retrace my steps.

very best,

These are rare here. PNW guys find Limacella not more than 2-3 times in their lifetime.
