I am beyond impressed at your ID skills. Every day, you demonstrate a level of ability that borders on the paranormal. You could have been modest and just left it at Bulgaria, but no, not Alain. He goes for the genus-species combo kill. BOOM!

When I look at this, I see a lumpy black thing held gently by nitrile gloved hands. When you look at it, you see the fine macro- and micro-characters that make this an obvious B. inquinans. I mean, the fact that it’s covered in crude oil, as per the notes section, could account for its blackness, but probably definitely not. That’s just a coincidence.
