the heartbreak of TMI…but of course, we KNOW that a lot of our names are wrong, so this is just a reality check for those quick and dirty in-hand IDs.
and, of course, the start of creating better names for our California collections, necessary and long overdue.

DNA sampling is fun and easy. You, too, will be trained in a couple of weekends, Doug, for our upcoming Yosemite foray! Just another tool in the toolshed…
Here’s a link to the You-Tube video showing how to use the Whatman DNA sampling cards…if I had a hammer… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gir56iYspTE

The plan is to get molecular analysis on each of these collections? Interesting, well, might help on names, or give you more samples where now you know you don’t know the name…

colors important, but try keying these things out under dim fluorescent light!

no worries, tho…all Yosemite Fungal Survey collections are sampled for DNA…and that should help to put good (better?) names on them down the road.

But..t R.

But R. botrytis would have pink/red tips wouldn’t it? This looks like another R. rubricarnata, but you can’t really tell because it is old, and everything is going tan/brown.

R. botrytis?

Sure looks similar to what I find on Mt. Hood, but maybe a little larger.
