Observation 59113: Agaricales Underw.

Has a bit of the look (and all of the habit) of Coprinellus disseminatus except for deliquescence. Not a single observable fruit body showed even the faintest signs of inky deterioration. Then there are the white gills and (probably) white spores.

Dried specimen obtainable with permission from el Herbario Nacional de Bolivia.

strongly asserts the non-coprinoidity of this long ago collection.

thanks, Richard

What tour? If you are referring to Mushroaming, I don’t recommend it. Tourism leaves little time for taxonomy, and though I can’t claim know the absolute latest, last I checked the director of the herbarium was furious with that outfit. I would instead have your university get directly in touch with the herbarium and negotiate the terms of a “project” to be conducted under and sanctioned by their leadership. In theory, this should ensure that you will be allowed to transfer material to your home institution once you’ve finished making collections. I’ve sent you the director’s name and email address in a PM.

My next planned return date is November 2014 for the 8th Congreso Latinoamericano de Micologia in Medellin, though possibly sooner, especially if enough other researchers are involved. Myself and Brennan Wenck, a former grad student of Dennis Desjardin’s, have pitched the idea of a Bolivian mycoblitz here and there at forays, presentations, etc. There seems to be some interest.

so IT IS possible to get the collections one makes down there? I wanted to attend the tour this year but couldn’t once again. Now I definitely want next year but one thing that really annoys me is that I will have no possibility of at least keep a doublet of my finds or send it to the University of Vienna because so it will be of no use as I see it. Everywhere I have been collecting I took my collections with me or sent it to Vienna if with or without permission. Slowly results are earned. And it has to be with South America too otherwise I think I will have to refrain from going there?

Danny, you should see that these get scoped! Very cool clusters, whatever they are.

handheld camera sssshhhhake is part of the deal. and then those pesky, ever so slightly jerky heartbeats, too…;)

again, impressive capture! keep up the good work.

thanks Debbie

this one was high ISO and the good ol’ “hold steady” method. we must not have nescafe’d that morning. you should see the originals. grainiest looking things I’ve ever captured on camera.

there’s a whole series here of stuff shot along the trail leading into Chalalan. for some reason, (I can’t for the life of me figure out why) the tripod wasn’t at arm’s length, so they’re all hand-held, many being rather iffy in the definition department.

these 2009 Bolivia photos have been edited and re-edited a good 4-5 times. everything I know about lightroom (which isn’t much) I learned in this set, probably over the course of a year or more. slaving away for hours on end in the digital dungeon suite of the Lewis & Clark library. pretty sure I lost a girlfriend over it. most of it’s been correcting for mistakes made during the picture-taking part of the process, a problem I think i can expect to be reduced to a minimum for next year’s images.

love the thumbnail…

nice sharp photo. how did you do an air brace for your camera???

It looks good in the photo, but I see that the sheets are white. The basidiomas are already well developed and should be the sheets of purple ..

It is not, but I seem Coprinus S.L.
thanks, Chuck

I’m glad you like it. Of course, I see high noise, low detail and overall poor low-light performance, but I’m in a constant state of photographic self-criticism. the detail we can’t see might just be the difference between a sure ID and pure speculation. microscopy would be a help as well. next time…

Great pic

i thought they did. I’ve seen some that looked like they were on their way to a mess of ink, but i suppose they were just a darker form.

These don’t autodigest … that’s probably why they’re not Coprinus
