Recognized by sight: Can’t find a description of it anywhere, but what pictures exists show at least a vague resemblance, which is what I was going for originally in proposing Crinipellis Definitely not parasitic in this instance, but C. perniciosa isn’t always a plant pathogen.

and, luckily, it will see a scope for the first time this summer (barring any postal snafus).

As a side note, I’m not 100% sold on Crinipellis, just at a loss for better ideas. The likelihood of C. perniciosa is in further doubt given the non-pathogenicity and a number of macro inconsistencies (see http://www.mycobank.org/...), though apparently some similar, non-pathogenic varieties have been described from Ecuador.

Gosh this thing is beautiful.
