may I ask you a favour.
The genus Xerocumellus, and related genera due to recent changes in taxonomy, is one that I usually found few specimens. However, this year maybe due to the crazy weather we had I found lots of them, many of which I could not identify to species. Can you give a more deatiled look at my observations?
