I hope it dries well. It looks like it was dry on the cap surface when you found it.

Very best,

I thought this one looked a bit different, so I brought it home on the off chance you might want the specimen.

I’ll send it along in a few days when it’s dried.


I wish you had a dried specimen.

This looks very interesting. I think it is in sect. Vaginatae, but it lacks the usual markers for pachycolea.

Very best,
