macrochemical spot tests. I think vouchering such tests with dried specimens (as you have done) is very important. If you send me a part of the specimen, I will add information about it and its voucher status to the WAO website.

Thanks for the suggestion.

it should be at 72% as it is commonly used in mycology.it faded away with the yellow reaction in about 1-2 hours, it was a warm day anyway.

And the purple-magenta reaction of the gills to sulphuric acid.

Did the gill reaction fade rapidly? What concentration of sulphuric acid did you use?

Very best,
