just let it dry in the air

no need to do something special with those tiny things. If you have a place were it is warm and a slight flow of air (old fashion screen or radiator etc.) put it there. If you like to, you can send me the dried exsiccate and I will look at it. But mail to Germany is not quite cheap …

That was fast it quite rare that people are interested in my picture

I don’t know exactly how to dry them (put them in the congelator?) and I don’t yet have a good microscope I really hope to have one at christmas.

What is a exsiccate ?

How can you tell that it is common

when you don’t know the species? A lot of those Mollisia look absolutely identical. It’s totally grey, it seems, and it doesn’t look to be cinerea nevertheless. Intersting, is there an exsiccate?
