with a bolete (gasp!) “destroyed” by slicing!!!

Dang, who knew you were so sensitive to the feelings of mushrooms? ;)

Martin is of the “mo’ is bettah” MO philosophy, as most of us here are.

yes Noah, photos are worth a thousand words or lists. instead of getting all butt-hurt over the sour reception that your data free species lists get here, why not put your daily/weekly/monthly species lists up on your own webpage or Facebook, where you don’t have to back up what you say?

This site is really designed for deeper data and consensus ID. Your photos here on this particular obsie are just fine as bare bones documentation, altho you show that you can do better.

Martin is just attempting to raise the bar for everyone. That’s a good thing.

at least 20 observations of this mushroom on MO (mostly under the older name).

It is not necessary to destroy it to identify it, and since list are met with so much resistance on this site, I snapped a photo; sorry it’s not good enough…

I’m also sorry that the mycology community is not getting records of mushrooms from the CA mountains from April until Aug… Because list are not good enough.

Red pores would definitely stain dark blue quickly

Flesh? Probably, maybe, a little, not at all??? It’s a cool mushroom and seems rare if current records on MO are to be believed. In a way, it is too nice to chop anyway.

There are scratches

no, not that I have photos of.

No scratch or slice through for oxidation reactions?
