Just arrived and in operation Yeh! kk I returned to the State Forest yesterday in the hope of retrieving another specimen of [MO] Observation: Oudemansiella Speg. (161436). It only keeps for a very short period. I managed to get several smaller specimens, so will do some micrographs when dried. Rod, I noticed some specimens about 40foot up the trunk near the top of the canopy.!!

Thank you, Ian.

As soon as I am sure about its condition it will be on its way. Looks good at the moment. The smaller of the two specimens cap has opened but looks good. Annulus on both still intact. Chow, kk

Very nice, Ian.

I’d be interested in seeing your specimen if it dries well.

Very best,

R
