“I examined the basidiospores during the course, it is not E. quadratum, my field determination/guess was E. lycopersicon because of the colors and slightly winged basidiospores. I am hoping to receive the collection from Esperanza’s lab so that I can make a firm determination….and extract DNA for ITS, nlsu and rpb2 sequences for a start.”
