Would you be willing send me a part of the specimen from this observation?

I think it would be very valuable for my research.

Thanks for your consideration of the request.

Very best,


I see Christian’s point.

If a microscope were available, I’d also check the cap surface for narrow, upstanding (or collapsing and formerly upstanding) hyphe with lots of clamp connections. In a Limacella these would be the gluten-retaining hyphae on the pileus.

Very best,


Do you have a way to look at spores?

Round spores will point to Limacella (which I am leaning towards)
