Beautiful collection, beautiful observation, but I am not familiar with this species. Never seen it.

Let me give you a perspective — today I walked all day long throughout the Mendocino ($pendocino, as it is called nowadays) woods and saw no new to me cort species. This one I am not familiar with.

Mike Davis found another new to me cort recently. Apparently, 5 years collecting is not enough…
