Yes, I would like dried material. While a young specimen would be cool for looking at the volva structure on the cap, I’ll need a couple of mature specimens so that I can build up a good set of spore measurement data from your material. There are several things called Limacella illinita in North America according to my meager information gleaned to date. I am very interested in material of Limacella from all over the world, but I think there are probably enough taxa in N. America to last me a long time…
would you like some ?
this is a neat find!!!….BTW Rod do you want me to be looking for some for you too?
Oh, I’m sorry that you don’t have a dried specimen from this lot. They’re lovely and I’ve never reviewed a specimen in the “illinita group” from Canada. Very similar material occurs in Florida, Arizona, and in central Mexico (state of Tlaxcala). If you can collect material of Limacella (any species!), I’d be very happy to receive dried material for microscopic examination.
