that this should be one of the few Hawaiian mesic forest macrofungi which Lynx was never able to find. the Fungi of the Hawaiian Islands site says it’s rare, known from only two collections.

Not were, am.

Here til the 18th. Come out to highlands and foray with us for a spell. Drs. Methven, Peterson and Hughes are all in residence.

Will check the pileipellis tomorrow. Thanks for the suggestion, both you and Jacob.

Definitely Camarophyllopsis

And assuming it had no strong odor I would put my money on C. hymenocephala. It is a very macroscopically variable species with respect to color but I have sequenced something that looks a lot like this and is identical to the type. If you want to put the nail in the coffin a pileipellis section should do it.

You were in my neck of the woods and you didn’t hit me up Danny? Knoxville may not be as interesting as San Fran but I could still show you a good time ;)

lol.
