Microscope needed to be sure of identity.

It’s still an old man of the woods. Fiery Gizzard, what a cool Appalachian name…

Here is a comment from another member on one of my observations:
-
Strobilomyces floccopus (Vahl) P. Karst. irenea

Recognized by sight: I was confused for a few seconds, but no microscope needed here. Big and soft scales in floccopus, small and pointed scales in confusus :-)

— Feral Boy

I thought that you needed a scope to get a name on these guys…
