didn’t preserve them, and I recently removed all my old species from my garage. They were probably there on the bags I collected them in; including date and location.
Both obs. were found in the same location. I also have some photos of L. species from Salt Springs State Park. I’ll try to crop them as Igor said and we’ll see what happens.

obs 195273 could be the same species…

as what is seen in this observation. Phil, did you find 227479 and 195273 in the same (exact) location?

For the ones with drab-colored caps and liberally distributed blackish scabers, I tend to lean toward either L. scabrum or L. snellii for species ID, with amount/type of staining on the cut context serving as determining factor. No blue or greenish, or just a small such area near the stipe base, seems to point toward scabrum. Bluing in more than 20% of the stipe base seems to point toward snellii, especially when there’s also pink/red in the upper stipe.

This observation (227479) is interesting for the way the scabers seem to be patterned, like a partial reticulatum.

Did you preserve this material?

Yea I did!

misstruck a digit in that observation number you mentioned. It’s a Lacrymaria. You may edit the old comment by just changing the number of the suggested observation.
