and didnt realize that the program allows you to only favor one and puts the second as promising when you change your mind.

The scientist in me wants to go with the scientists. The person that deals with the public every day and the innumerable field guides wants to put what they see in just about every field guide.

So I wanted to put “I’d call it that.” for both statements.

I’d call it Discomycetes on this site and lemon drops with the general public.

Thanks, Dave.

Thanks for looking at my observation, Dave, and for taking time to provide me with your very interesting 2013 Observation. It give me a good idea of the problems inherent with identifying B. citrina; I appreciate the education.
