nice find – I don’t think it has been recorded from the area around Tilden Park.

Yes, I would be interested if you find another one, thanks!

I did indeed

Sauteed in butter. It was maybe halfway to unpalatable, in terms of bitterness. No ill effects, though. I’ll be happy to dry you one if I find another.

I id’d from Arora’s 1991 ATTRP,AM , so Marshii is a new name to me. Glad to hear about it, I’m gonna go read up on marshii now!

Is there a way to edit the observation date once you’ve made the observation? This one is incorrect. Not that far off, but still… UPDATE, ok! I found out how to edit observations.

Did you actually manage to eat it?

If not, I’d be interested in getting a dried specimen from you…
