Have I sent you the page of paper rulers?

Measuring along the surface of a cap is more valuable tan measuring across a cup
(or an inverted cup). A flexible ruler also helps get an accurate length of a sinuous stem.

I can’t remember if I have an email for your or if I’ve already sent you the paper rulers by email.

If you don’t have them and would like them, email me via MO.

Very best,


I will, I was just being lazy.

I need to start carrying rulers.

Very interesting, Garrett.

I would suggest splitting the collection so that the gray-capped and brown-capped taxa are separated. The stem surface that you note be a second character (in addition to cap color) that points to the possibility of there being two separate species here.

Very best,
