I added some notes which I originally neglected to post with this Observation. For this Observation, there was a determination on the day of collection by someone who looked at the actual mushroom — not merely a photo. The determination is documented and supported by the contemporaneous hand-written note of the determiner. And the determiner is fairly reliable.

I understand some members’ point about photos, and that they cannot confirm — to their own satisfaction — the occurrence of the taxon as spelt out in this Observation. Other folks might draw the line elsewhere, demanding a specimen (like Adolf) or even a sequence (like the North American Mycoflora Project). But for me, the notes and photos of the slip are good enough to justify an MO posting.
