Thanks, Irene.

I’ll try to establish a way for you to reach me. All the email has to do is go through one blacklisted machine between you and me, and my usual email server will bounce it back.

I’ll send you another address.

I have tried several times to send you e-mails about Limacella, but they keep bouncing (I have tried two addresses with the same result).
I can’t do much about it, just hope that others will excuse me now for using MO to get in contact. I’m taking the opportunity to tell you that you can use any of my pictures anyway you want.

I’m sure this is what we in Scandinavia (still) call glioderma, the most common one of the Limacella species here (Limacella delicata var. glioderma according to Earle – and Andreas Gminder). I haven’t been aware of different varieties before last autumn.
What I don’t understand, is the combination of glioderma with delicata, a species that obviously has been interpreted in many different ways. And using delicata as the main species is a perfect setup for misunderstandings when glioderma and vinosorubescens sometimes are included, sometimes not..!

Well, at least I have been able to find a few pictures that actually could match the description of delicata:
