The split stems

look really cool! But I think that’s more of a goofy environmental effect than a taxonomically relevant characteristic.

Are you sure the cap was >= 1.5 inches? That is technically within the range in this species description, but from the photos they do look smaller than that to me…

Thanks Jacob

I’ve added more of a description, and wonder if this still fits M. haematopus. I’ve never seen this type, this large, with the intertwining stems.
