We have received the dried specimen. Thank you. It is being accessioned in Rod’s herbarium.

OK! Then I think they are darkened parts of the original universal veil.

This is cool. A little advance in knowledge. Fingers crossed that we can get DNA from sp-T05.

Very best,


Those blackish flaps

on the base seemed peculiar to both fbs, which weren’t growing right next to each other and were fairly deep in the ground.
They do look similar to A. "sp-T05.

Maybe, ___sp-T05__?

There’s a picture on the checklist for sp-T05.

Very best,

Not sure I know this one.

Is that a black volval sack on the lower stem or a rotten leaf?

Very best,
