yes, a missing letter

Thanks for the feedback. What a difference a letter makes. Reading Jens Petersen’s new book this week which describes ‘emarginate’ as “first bend toward the cap but then turn and go slightly down the stem” and has nothing to do with gill edges as marginate would suggest. I’ve never been happy with the term ‘notched’ and emarginate seems more specific to me. Thanks again.

don’t appear to me to be marginate in these photos – do you have a photo of the marginate gills?
