how terrible! Colombia is host to some truly wonderful fungi. Hopefully your next trip to the Neotropics will be rainier.

1. Thanks for taking the time to make all the suggested IDs for my recent postings.
2. What brought me to Colombia (I’m now back in Oregon) was my wife, who wanted to make the trek to Teyuna/Ciudad Perdida. Certainly not the mushrooms, which unfortunately were sparse to non-existent in most of the country due to the continuing drought.
