We have accessioned this material to Rod’s herbarium and scheduled it to be sampled for DNA sequencing.

Very best,


It does sort of look gray there, doesn’t it? I did not note it at the time.

I did not note it at the time. I was too busy enjoying the way the volva attaches way up on the stem. Reminds me of A constricta from out West. And had a very elegant cap. Too bad it was a singleton.

Another special creature.

I don’t recognize this one. Is the volva graying below the rectangular hole in the sack?

Very best,
