also likes Basswood but in Pa. it is most common in Sept.& Oct.

I’d love to see this species.

I’ll be in PA in June and July, and there’s plenty of Tulip Poplar around Lancaster. I will keep my eyes out…

Thank you, shroomydan! I was stumped for months on this. I guess it’s no longer acceptable to call it Crinula calciiformis…
