It will be awhile before the sequence is posted for public access, the process is started.

Very best,

This species provided a very nice “proposed barcode” sequence that I received from Dr. Geml’s lab in Leiden. The species has a distinctive sequence and is identifiable with only one other collection that we have accumulated in Roosevelt—a collection sent to us by Britney Ramsey from Linn Co., Oregon. What little we know so far will be posted here:


May I use one or more of your photos?

Very best,

This Limacella was also seen at the Humboldt Bay Mycological Society mushroom fair in Eureka on November 23, 2013.

Very interesting stuff.

I can’t wait to see the material and learn more.

I don’t know if I can make it for the NAMA foray. It would be nice if I could.

This was found on a scouting trip for the NAMA 2014 annual foray. Pack Forest will have a couple of forays going to it.

Do you recall whether the stem was dry or moist?
