advice on drying. I now have a dehydrator so if I find them again I am all set!

I think the best way…

would be to dry the intact polypore/parasite together. If you don’t have a dehydrator, then air-drying by hanging in a south-facing window for a couple days (preferably, an attic window) will at least get the material in good enough condition to mail. But, air drying has proved to reduce the chances that usable DNA may be extracted.

No, but the blackfooted

polypores are fruiting now and i will keep my eyes open. How would one save it?

Did this ever get collected and saved?

I will try to collect and dry some this weekend.

I would say, collect/dry them.

There is someone who is actively researching NE species of Entoloma. If you like, I’ll ask him about this obs.

Should I try to fetch them in and dry them? Unless something disturbed them, they are probably still out there.

Great find!

If this is Entoloma parasiticum, then this is a new host species.
