sounds to me like “don’t bother posting if you don’t have a specimen,” which is an opinion not shared by the site. if that wasn’t what you meant.

a: I apologize


b: consider rewording what you intend to have taken lightheartedly

“pet genus…”

is that because i am interested in it and choose to study it?

or because i feed it and give it water and let it sleep on my chest like my cat…

just curious as to what your point is?

because from my perspective…you dont have one.

what the hell are you talking about…??

i think my comment was very nice.
perhaps, you need to reevaluate your opinion of “criticism.”

i was simply making a suggestion and a joke.

if you cannot comprehend that concept…i don’t know what to tell you.

there are no stated expectations

anywhere in this observation, on the part of the uploader or anyone else, on the subject of “solid identifications.” there is plenty of use in taking pictures of fungi, particularly fungi from Colombia, with or without a specimen. getting biological material out of Colombia is considerably more difficult than taking a picture of Colombian fungi.

i find the insinuation that Atlides has somehow slacked off or trespassed upon your pet genus needlessly antagonistic. less than perfect documentation is a welcome and necessary part of the site.

did you…

keep any of these…?
if you can collect in the future i would appreciate it.
there is really no use in taking a picture of Gymnopilus and expecting a solid identification.
at the very least, you should collect for your own sanity.
