We have recieved this material, and accessioned it to Rod’s herbarium.

I agree that circular creases are likely to be the result of in situ drying.

Rod Additional images loaded for you to view.

Rod, Have loaded some additional images so that you may take a look and comment. Thanks, & Chow, kk


The top of the cap and close to the edge of the outer perimeter, there are small circular grooves about 5mm wide(all in total), but I thought these might be from the drying effect?.
On the underside of the pileus and close to the outer perimeter edge, there is a “individual” group of “Gill” formation distinct from the normal gill formation. This habit is about 3mm in width and has a “crimped” look. The details on both specimens are “alike” or the same..

Doesn’t look like the cap had radial grooves on the margin.

Would you say that that is correct?
