Thanks for the referral to Prof. Ryvarden. I certainly appreciate getting a confirmed ID for these. I’ve since found another colony of these about 0.5 km from these and can recognize them by sight now.

Dr. Ryvarden is an excellent resource. Glad to see this positively IDed, and by the world’s foremost authority in the group, no less.
