Danny:

Your guess why it’s so red is as good as any.

The photo (sorry for the quality) was taken Sunday, 27 Oct. The collection was 26 Oct, or possibly earlier. So it was sitting in a relatively dry room for at least a day. (You’ve probably noticed that many of the recently posted photos from the 2103 OMS Fall Mycocamp also show dried-up specimens.)

I’m afraid I can’t answer this question. What I was looking at when I wrote that tag was not nearly as red as what we see in the photo.
