Hi Ron,

very nice collection!! These are not common. I am pretty sure that I have the same collection under Tanoak from SPSP. This one really looks like one of those less frequent Myxaciums in the Anomali group. I see some glutinous reflection on the stipe. Anyway, the gelatinous layer can be ascertained easily under the microscope. Please keep the collection. Once I return to the States I will organize all Fall collections (quite a few) and have a better map to navigate against… Sorry, for the incomplete info
