Proposed Names

Recognized by sight: Strongly doubtful you can’t get to species on these without a lot more work, check out Smith’s keys if you don’t believe me… First step in his key assuming you even get to species loosely around P. gracilis which requires microscopy to determine, does it have pink staining? P. gracilis sensu stricta should according to Smith, along with several other species.

I put this name on knowing it was probably wrong, so I apologize for that. At fairs I’ll also put names on things like Paxillus involutus, Hydnellum aurantiacum and Boletus edulis, for lack of a better name or insufficient information (macromorphologically indistinct, unknown host or substrate, etc). This is because most attendees of the fair are not interested in the identity details, they just want a name so they can look it up in a book, if they even bother to read the name at all.

Thanks for explanation

Thanks for the vote and especially for the explanation.
I don’t know who ID’d this one. Perhaps if s/he is on MO, the determiner can respond.
