or something like that came up when I was typing in the name, but as there are no observations with that name, the name does not show up on the Index. I am drying what is left of the collection. I felt sure at the time that this was not either H. megalospora or H. furfuracea and the photos on MO reinforce that opinion.

I thought Roody would have it in his book, but alas…,

is a match for H. furfuracea but I’m not buying this.

Right Igor!

It was way back in under the mountain laurel and (at least to me at the time) startlingly bright yellow. It could have been more than a foot; remember this one?

You left your excavating equipment at home, Martin. This thing could have been a foot long!
