I will be glad to arrange a UBC loan, if you are really interested in this particular specimen.

Thanks for your help

We have three collections of this mushroom, two of them have been already accessioned into the UBC herbarium, the third one (MO Image 264130) is to be accessioned soon: http://mushroomobserver.org/image/show_image?id=264130&obs=110578&q=2FcnN
The December 4, 2012 specimen has microscopic detail in MO Observation # 119711. On MO, each of these three collections are labelled with three different names. All three collections were submitted (and two of them already accessioned) to the UBC herbarium as Mycena luteopallens, resp. as Mycena ? luteopalens. If MO users (other than the observation author) will be changing the observation names willy-nilly, the connection between the MO observations and supporting herbarium specimens may be lost. Contact me privately, if you want to know how to solve this, I don’t want to bore the MO audience with my repeated complains. I also promised Nathan that I would be quiet and follow the MO procedures.

Maas Geesteranus, qui a étudié les mycènes d’Amérique du Nord, le type de Mycena luteopallens, Agaricus luteopallens, espèce décrite par Peck, est en fait un Hygrocybe. Le nom de luteopallens est donc mal appliqué. Maas Geesteranusa a renommé l’espèce Mycena crocea..

“Mycena crocea
Is the correct name for Mycena luteopallens. Peck’s type was a Hygrocybe.”
Reference for this statement, please! AOC

Is the correct name for Mycena luteopallens. Peck’s type was a Hygrocybe…
