The three observations that you propose are made ​​BY YOU in YOUR AREA
Without any link to a site ID , and no confirmation vote .
The method is questionable as your vote. But I continue .
- For http://mushroomobserver.org/83604 " NOTE : smooth stipe. " Usually the references begin with the hat, after the margin , blades etc. . . The stipe comes last , often depends on the hole where it grows and ETC . It is doubtful.
More look at the Log: http://mushroomobserver.org/observer/show_rss_log/89082 you identify, Galerina sp. Earle, the same day ALAN proposes Gymnopilus sp. P. Karst .. You have nine months to propose Gymnopilus penetrans (Fr.) Murrill and destroy Galerina Earle. Doubtful.
- To http://mushroomobserver.org/103687 . Only ONE specimen in the world, has appointed HAWAI the 2007-12-15 . There seven years. If you see them everywhere , this is serious! IMPAIRED .
- For http://mushroomobserver.org/106879 , one shot WITHOUT BOTTOM VIEW = Gymnopilus P. Karst. FUNGI .. maybe. It is doubtful.
Now, Miko choose ,or you. And sorry for my english very imperfect.
