I saved almost everything…not the macros, but most of the small stuff…

while others were drinking wine and shooting the breeze, i was working up these collections. mycologists never sleep (and when we do, we dream of fungi…)
ps Arora also thought this was an unusual and/or undescribed sp. of hebeloma; i made everyone smell it!

Oh, these are neat…

Should try and save these, for that future “we should try and understand Hebeloma someday” project. That someone will get to at some point…
