because they’re difficult to keep intact on the ride home.
Basically you have to take substrate home and water it, and as Sava suggested, catch them right at their prime.
Thanks, Byrain. While walking along the trail, I saw these mushrooms 2-3 times on horse dung. I took home only a small bit of dung because of a Peziza that was growing on it, and it produced the next day three miser fruitbodies. I managed to save one and left the substrate in a wet chamber hoping to get some more. There were three more, but I lost them because I was not paying enough attention. Maybe more will grow.
If there are not many of these in herbaria, it’s probably only because people didn’t care enough to get them.
Can you save these? It would be worth comparing the DNA with other collections.
