I’ve seen some pictures of what looked very much like these posted in Facebook mushroom groups from Delaware County, Ohio and Wayne County, Indiana (I think one or both were posted by Chris Matherly) but none of those were vouchered. I’m gonna be sending these to Bart Buyck. There’s a pretty good chance that these represent an inscribed species.

Nice find Django

I don’t think I have ever seen this before.
