Not my new one, had to rejuggle some finances.
I have my old one, just with Easter weekend, I couldn’t catch a chance. I have the entire day today though.

I’ve never scoped something like this. How do I do it?

Slice and smash and see what can be seen?

I find this species along with Sarcosoma mexicana at this time of year here in Olympia,WA.
Not positive if it is P. melaena but looks very similar. Tiny stem at base of cups?

This is big and not green in any way. It looks nothing like the other examples here on MO.
