They look the same,

but this is no proof as we all know by now :)
I would be surprised if they turned out to be the same species. In Cal everything’s different, even compared to the rest of the U.S. …

Um, me…

Um, me, no I don’t know. I would think that perhaps Dimi might at this point. I need to check out the spores here, but at least I checked this time that the taste is bitter, quite bitter. I have material from the Geneva area, and I’ve looked at spores there, and I want to compare to these.

I would think they would be different, but they don’t look all that different.

Do you know

if your infractus over there is genetically different and needs a new name or is identical to our European one?
