I’m hoping that we could link these up to some other collections with DNA. I have a feeling I might have collected the one in the middle.

Very best,


These are some beauties.

In person the tones on the caps seem so much more wood-like.

Should I separate the images?

I think there are two species here. I don’t think either of the species has a name.

The middle image looks like a zonate, olive tinted mushroom that has been posted by on of the Missouri participants on MO.

Both types would be of interest to me with regard to research on section Vaginatae.

So many interesting species are showing up this year.

Very best,
