The material with the MO#s listed below was received and accessioned to Rod’s herbarium. We have scheduled them to be sampled for DNA sequencing.


Thank you!

Thank you.

Sounds good to me.

Very best,

you’d ask, Rod, because I have another sample (from http://mushroomobserver.org/205600?q=2fWvQ) that I’d also like to send your way as well. I’ll put them in the dryer and send them your way at some point this week.

Fascinating, Logan.

Can you obtain material for drying and subsequent study?

I have never seen exactly this pigmentation in a species of the Caesareae. The material is mature in your pictures, which means that useful microscopy would be possible. The material seems fresh, which suggests that there is chance to dry it and find that DNA is extractable from the dried material.

I’d like to see if this is a new species.

Very best,
