I’ll watch for a secondhand dehydrator. Looks like part of my craft area is going to the fungi. :)

Preservation is easy

Just use a commercial food dehydrator/beef jerky maker to dry your samples. Don’t exceed 115 F to keep DNA intact. Large specimens and densely-fleshed boletes can be sliced for faster drying.

Thanks, I. G.

No, I did not preserve this. That’s probably the next thing I should learn to do. Any advice or links are welcome!

I’m frequently in this area, and I will keep an eye out for more of the same.

Very interesting collection, Sarah

Not even sure which genus to place it into. Did you preserve these by any chance?
