I’d be delighted to visit the property (but in warmer months – right now I’m enjoying winter slumber in my burrow :-)

Thank you, Andrew. I made the appropriate correction. This was my first posted observation on MO, and I had a brain typo during the creation process, mistakingly thinking that “Creation date” meant date of creation of the post rather than date of collection/photography of the specimen. Since you live nearby, please consider visiting our property sometime. It’s called Fair Meadows, and it is a Wisconsin State Natural Area.

Good fungus

Hey, Gary: you might want to change the date on observation. It shows collection date as of today. When I first looked at it, I thought: maybe I should move to Milton – looks much warmer there (I’m currently in Madison, barely 25 miles from you, and we’re buried in the snow :-). Nice to have someone else from Wisconsin on MO! (I think there are few other people out there too).
