of Vaginatae in the Catskills last Saturday (fourth just posted obs 212643 ). The area had apparently received a period of decent rainfall a few days earlier. There was good fungal diversity along the trail.

Since returning home I haven’t yet been in the local woods. 1"-2" rain fell over most of my region beginning 3 days ago. Before that, a 3-4 week period of dry weather had slowed down the mushrooms. Even during the very wet month of June, the local oak woods were not producing a diversity of fungi one may expect during such a period of weather. I think the Gypsy Moth infestation may have held things back. The oaks got completely defoliated and then produced new leaves during the first part of July. Now that these forests are back to normal, and a good soaking rainfall has occurred, I think things will become interesting in these areas. I hope to get out into the woods later today.

This material is of interest to me, David.

It seems that the appearance of species in the Vaginatae is down a bit since the NEMF foray. Are you seeing much?

Very best,
