I already knew that you are a dreamer, but never expected that you showed it as in your previous message.
Can you be more precise and teach all of us (not just me but all the others that don’t investigate to exhaustion their observed mushrooms) how to identify a mushroom?
I know very well what the convenient response should be: to vote doubtful in any of your observations for which you don´t give all the details, notes and microscopy of the specimens considered. But that will give me to much work and I not interested to spend my few time with that.

for the record…

i dont need you to translate anything for me, ever…
just say what you mean to begin with.
im not a mind reader.

your statement propels exactly what is currently wrong with taxonomy/systematics.
you are by all means, “guessing” at what you think this MIGHT be because you saw photos of it on a website/internet and have conducted no research on the topic. you are basing your “assumptions” on an observation, which in all likelihood has absolutely no basis for comparison and is most likely not backed up with an herbarium specimen, microscopy, cultures…or at the very least, evidence.

until you, at the very least come to accept the fact that you MIGHT not know what you are talking about, your votes, name proposals and observations are completely and utterly, useless.

sorry for the run-on sentence, i couldnt help myself.

I translate it for you:

One can not pretend that every mushroom observed has the corresponding microscopic observation though all of them deserve such analysis, unless you are a professional of the business or you observe a small number of mushrooms. Thus, some have to be identified by other means (like good sense for correctly interpreting their characteristics). In the case of this specimen there are not many hyphotheses and, according to www.mycoquebec.org, only the species C. aurantiocinnabarina has similar features.

what does that mean?
