if it looks good, i can take a few more shots for you. This was a stand-out Melanoleuca, even for someone who doesn’t care for them all that much…;)

do you have more pictures?

or may be you think they (Melanoleuca sp) are boring, Well i don’t. possibly because they come up early in the spring were I used to live, I collected them for food! pretty good I thought, any way I guess you have to do microscopic work to ID correctly.
