Hey Danny –
Thanks for the ID.
I am back in California.
I will be posting a few more fungus, especially from Masoala.
Purpose of the trip – I was teaching a course on Island Biogeography of Madagascar. Any idea about how Cyathus haller got to Madagascar?
Some other mara pix:
It looks like you focus on Bolivia. I will be heading down to the Pantanal in Brazil next summer. Let me know if there is anything I should be on the lookout for there.
Mycologically yours, Bob

are you currently in Madagascar? Do you have any other observations from there? What is the nature of your visit?
