that the stipe shows the same hollow chambers that I find in A. ocreata.

is this typical of bisporigera in general, eastern hunters? I have not spent much time slicing up bisporigeras.

gosh, valuable photographic evidence, in an easily accessible, public database!

shame that you feel the need to take your balls and go home, Noah, but hey, somehow, we’ll all manage to carry on.

still, when you do post real data, it’s good data, and appreciated. Just like for all of the other serious posters here, who take the time to document their interesting finds.

Mo’ really is better, and it is rather disingenuous to argue otherwise. When we die, all of our undocumented lists became grocery lists, unless they are backed up by hard data. It is not my own name that I represent here, but what I find, and how others can also know what I find. “Trust me” is a lousy way to make a database.

But I have never been much of a faith-based biologist. Your guiding light may vary.
