Observation 27242: Hypoxylon Bull.
When: 2008-07-13
No herbarium specimen

Notes: CLASS B

Specimen collected on a residential property immediately adjacent to the first crude pump established in February of 1967. Despite claims of remediation by the offending companies and $200 in out-of-court compensation, the soil and water are still demonstrably rich with petroleum. This specimen’s substrate showed no discernible signs of contamination.

Collected for the Amazon Mycorenewal Project.
