I appreciate your perspective and those DIC photos! They are great. How do you get the scale indication on the picture? I am trying my first extractions now. Hope to get to the sequencing soon. It seems a shame we can’t slap a name on these frequently encountered species. At the same time, I guess that is a big part of the fun.
…. because it lacks the dark edged gills. Yes, this is on the list for sequencing. Funny thing is that most of my Entoloma sequences do not give good hits anywhere. Much work to be done to id most of these.
these Entolomas? I think this one is too big to be the one you reference in the link. But I like the blue stipe of the one in the link. It lacks the marginate gills of E. serrulatum, but is that a valid characteristic by which to delineate species?
