If you can send me some…

I have a few Humaria collections from Mexico that I plan to sequence, I’d be happy to include yours if you can send me a small bit of each collection.

Alan, can you help, I mean really help?

We would be delighted if you could have a look at our specimens.and help us with the identification. Practically all our Victoria specimens labeled Humaria hemispharica
came from Observatory Hill below the road and they are deposited in the UBC herbarium. It was highly unprofessional from me that I posted MO observation without a collection and I don’t question the professionallity of those who think that they can ID (at least to the family) by just looking on the photo. Here aree our Humaria hemisphaerica collections:

Interesting find anyway

Oluna says that it would be easy to identify, since there are not too many Otidea species that would have hairs on the outside of their fruiting bodies. Unfortunately, I did not collect it, it could have been the type of Otidea hirsuta T.B. Wheeler. Next time!

It was rather old and weathered

and Oluna refused to collect it.
I am not afraid to post atypical photos – see

I hope you would not call it Otidea. Adolf

I don’t really know ascos

But it looks like a great match for Humaria (margin, colors, shape) and a terrible match for Otidea to me.

Focus your effort on one of O&A’s several wrong obses! ;-)

I think that Oluna’s work has spoiled you, Danny!

Since so many of her fine observations have detailed micro-drawings.

But what else could this be, really?

Not in a burn zone, as far as I can see.

Not buried in the ground.

Insofar as pure macro, occurring on top of non-burned ground, H. hemisphaerica is the obvious choice.

please indicate as much somewhere in the observation
