I don’t recall that it was a bruising reax, Rod, in the sense of reacting from abuse when handled. Rather, that individual was over the hill and getting to the near slimy stage. However, I didn’t write up the specimen and am only going on recall from 10 days ago.

and a bruising reaction?

Well, I’m dripping with envy…again. It seems to have a reddish bruising reaction, also.

That’s a unique combination. I’ll dig around a bit.
