Specimen available

Growing on a cemetery lawn and surrounding a hardwood tree which I’ll ID later (not oak).

This first group of three occupied an area of about one square foot.

Spore Q quite variable. A few spores elongate.

The Hunlock Creek rooseveltensis material you have already represents Luzerne County. I could provide more precise information regarding locations for rooseveltensis material. Hunlock Creek, Dallas, and Moon Lake (PA) are all located in Luzerne County. Summer 2016 I made a few similar collections in Tuscarora State Park, which is located in Schuylkill County, PA.

I think I should add Luzerne and other eastern PA counties to the NJ+PA+LI…

Any advice you’d like to provide on that topic?

Very best.
