Else, I made new collections yesterday.

Two collections from each of the two logs providing the ones seen here, and a third collection from a log that I didn’t notice the other day. The specimens are currently in my dehydrator. This type seems to dry very slowly. After 10 hours in my homemade dehydrator, they were still quite flexible.

I’ll make a new post for the new collections.

just drying at 40 degrees C

there will not be much left after drying, but the DNA will still be there.

And we would love to have material from the whole country, including Pennsylvania!

I didn’t preserve these.

I bring home so much material. It would be like a full-time job preserving everything. But I do try to dehydrate material that I know someone will study.

Is there anything in particular I should know about optimally drying these? Hopefully, I’ll run across another batch. Two fruitings observed yesterday.

herbarium specimens of this species wanted !
