a good one for Greg Mueller to see. he’s spent a lot of time in Costa Rica and specializes in Laccaria. a look at the spores would be nice, but I’m guessing that’s not possible.

Looks pretty similar to some of the Euro pictures. It would be interesting if it was the same, I’m going to take it for now as a step in the right direction.
