I randomly came across the entry for this on your smugmug page:


along with many, many other things worth uploading to MO whenever you have the time. I’m curious, what lead you to believe this might be a Micropsalliota? You indicate that you used references. Was it ever scoped? Does a collection exist which could be loaned? Has someone already examined the material in detail?

I completely missed it. Well, nice to see it’s already well under way!

as do about 10 others (at the time of writing) for recurring to prolific unidentified Neotropical macrofungi. search for ‘unidentified’ in the search bar with ‘Species List’ selected from the adjacent drop-down menu.

Thanks for consolidating entries – if you want, you can make a “Species List” or Project on MO, and add observations to it, so that you don’t have to make one observation the crux.
Amazing mushroom!

I have located four entries on Mushroomobserver which might be the same species. Of course there are undoubtedly more, e.g. myxomop from Bolivia.
