well, at least your in hand IDer has experience with these beasts where they are supposed to occur!

Collected and ID’d by Dr. Else Vellinga and I don’t know if she had an opportunity to look at them under a scope. My job was simply to record the photos and they are NOT the best for this tiny beast.

this would have been a prime candidate for microscopy…

with its cylindrical spores. might be best to keep the rarities like this for double-checking those IDs.

Strange colours

for Panellus mitis.
I suppose it was checked in the microscope – for cystidia and things..?
Otherwise, I wouldn’t rule out some kind of Hohenbuehelia.

Wow, from CA?

Look at that, I didn’t think this one was found in CA. Wow, that is neat.
