Let me take the opportunity to thank your for a small packet that arrived by post today. It is in the herbarium having been brought through our endless snows by Mary this afternoon.

Very best,


Cap colouring

Rod, I can see your delimma with the cap colouring. I too cant really be absolutely sure, so…… As I will be preparing some specimens to send to you and if the dried specimen looks ok I will include it in the parcel. Hope this will solve the problem. Kind regards and thanks for your patience and assistance as always. Ian (kk)

For one reason or another, I have a hard time seeing much of the cap surfaces…

Do you think the material of this observation had a pattern of pigment like those seen in the images at the above URL?

Very best,
