It’s a good idea to follows collecting rules. Otherwise, you end up with very few places that will let you in.

Thanks for your additional thoughts on colors, etc.

Very best,

even in this place, I have found these type, a very light yellow and others of brighter yellow. Of course I’m not sure if they are really A. gemmata, specially these lighter colored. I am avoiding collecting mushrooms on this place, because they asked us to, however we’re allowed to collect to identify it. So I didn’t collect this (I forgot what you asked me last year, sorry), when I find others, I’ll try to keep some for you.

Europe, I would ask whether it is possible for you to send me one or a few things you’d call gemmata when nature provides and times allows.

In Scandinavia, the material most like gemmata is somewhat tan; I have seen nearly white material that was otherwise morphologically similar to a common concept of gemmata from Turkey; and I have seen photographs from France where the cap of a gemmata-like mushroom was yellow with an orange disc. The original description says the cap is golden yellow. I have the hope that a set of well-photographed collections combined with the available methods and tools might make it possible to sort out what is going on.

I thank you for all your support in the last year.

Very best,

Rod
