Yeah, but this guy hasn’t voted at all on name proposals, just the image quality of Rich’s photos. Everyone’s a critic :). Don’t take it so hard Rich! It’s a really good picture.

Else Vellinga has voted 622 times, and never posted an observation. Should she refrain from voting because of that???

“if you aren’t going to post any observations and only vote on MY observations…please refrain from voting at all.”

This is so wrong…

found growing among moss in a peat-rich environment. But it seems to me that a variety of different types of fungi sometimes migrate from primary habitat and produce fruit bodies in adjacent habitat; perhaps this is related to weather/moisture-availability. Presence of peat, reportedly a key aspect of B. uda habitat, seems a bit out-of-place for Florida.

Is definitely wrong for MY concept of H. udum, but this is a very strong morphological match. I’d like part of this collection to compare to material I’ve got here.

there was no moss present. these were definitely decomposing hardwood litter. Also, from what i’ve read, this is said to be a “northern species.”
