This is the only G. junionus patch I’ve found, and I spent a lot of time in the woods this past summer. I did encounter G. luteus on a few occasions. Most forest in my area consist of maple, birch, and pine, and G. luteus is usually present somewhere, although it can be elusive.

That’s cool man. I’ve never found Gym in the NE before. Is this your first time finding it?
