When: 2003-07-30

Collection location: Maggie Valley, North Carolina, USA [Click for map]

Who: Gerhard Koller (Gerhard)

Specimen available

it is the variety with a reticulate stipe but as there are specimens with a reticulate stipe and with ereticulate stipe growing from the same mycelium I consider this superfluous.

I have looked up my photos from back then now

but couldn’t find a pic of it. But I have to say that many of the pictures are still at the University of Vienna alongside with many exsiccata. I will have to look them up there but this cannot be before one month or the like. You have to keep me bugging that I will not forget.

Take a photo of the print and post it. I’d like to see the reticulate stipe.

That’s a stretch…

They’re not just nice to have, it would ignore some of the most important uses and strengths of this site to treat them as icing on the cake.

I bet there’d be 95% less traffic on this site if no one posted images, because they are super powerful
visual teaching tools. We all know what it’s like trying to interpret descriptions without illustrations…

with observations without an image?
The way this site is set up they aren’t necessary, though they are nice to have…
