Deciphering and posting cryptic LBMs, especially inocybes, doesn’t make much sense unless the write up contains a detailed microscopic description backed up by good quality pix… I have a lot of respect for this kind of effort!

Thanks IG,

I was hoping it would take me somewhere besides the usual “Inocybe sp.”

Nice microscopy work-up!
