I agree about the habitat.

It seems most common in the “New England hardwood-hemlock” forest type. However, I think the type locality (19th Century) was on Long Island. (Just going by memory…) I remember Jenkins saying to me that the collection contained an admixture of flavoconia; so things didn’t get off to an entirely clean start.

Very best,


Once I understood this species…

I started realizing it’s a lot more common than I had thought. I suppose there were many years that I passed it by thinking it was just another flavoconia. Seems to like hemlock with oak nearby.

Nice one.
