for your input. I have seen photos of that species and thought perhaps that was correct. Think this is probably as close as I will ever come.

Sebacina does look promising

Danny for your kind offer to take a look someday at my observation #174357. I will just put this one to bed for now in my unidentified folder, as so many are. Maybe I can get some input on it here at the mycological society in Missouri. It was fun to find. Thanks again.

i’ll take a look

Still have it in the refrigerator

in a paper bag. It is drying out anyhow, so might as well put it in the dehydrator. I DO NOT have a microscope. I know I should if I am going to continue in this pursuit. If ANYONE could use this in its dry state I would be happy to mail it. I have done that a couple of times. Otherwise, I will keep the dried specimen and maybe some day a name will pop up. I thank you for your interest. I have so many unidentified I eventually pitch. This is a complex field compared to my many years of doing vascular plants. One day I saw something that I found fantastic (a fungus) and hardly ever looked at plants again.

if possible

I would suggest scoping this, if you still have it.

Thanks Danny.

Your guess is a lot better than mine – none. I knew the moment I saw this it probably not real common. Maybe someone else will have another idea. Thought it was quite interesting. Thanks again.
