whether George was acting as a good faith representative of the identification authorities of the foray or a rogue agent. the observations to which I ascribed Imageless contained no mention of any correspondence to an official checklist. I rescind my vote with the recommendation that future observations from SOMA Camp species lists, as for those of any other foray, utilize the ’I’d Call it That’ confidence level, so as not to give the impression of the OP not being sure of the ID, and to make some mention of the fact that the observation is the MO equivalent of a species list entry.

I have to agree with George here

This is a classic case of a checklist.

A few paragraphs after “Article 3” in name page for Imageless, reads:

Imageless observations to which this name should not apply includes records from forays, species lists, etc. which may not have corresponding photography but serve a valuable purpose for the owner or site at large.

Tremella grows on hardwoods in our area. If the identifier was aware of this (and there were a lot of identifiers there plenty familiar with mushroom ID in CA), Dacrymyces is a reasonable conservative vote.

same confidence issue as well

as on other SOMA camp observations. ‘Promising’ implies doubt. see article 3 of the ‘Notes on Taxonomy’ section on the Imageless name page.

habitat info, or even a photo how are we supposed to know this is not Tremella or one of the Dacrymyces chrysospermus lookalikes (See D. aureosporus)?

Edit: Spelling.
