I agree 142955 is a interesting one. Collect it again when you can, especially from more locations and note tree associations, etc.

You will see some Inocybe publications coming from me soon. I’m in full swing with NE taxa, so I can do this work on my nickel. I’d suggest using NAMP funding for other Genera that you might find of interest.

Okay Linas.

We’ll make the white Inocybe mushrooms a point of emphasis… assuming I find some this year. (Please gods of mushrooms… do not judge me as presumptuous.)

Also, another target taxon may be this 142955. It’s a rimosa-imitator but with nodulose spores. Previously found in my front yard, so there’s a decent chance I’ll see it again.

Any other priorities? I think it’s a good idea for me to kinda narrow things down a bit. Lots of irons getting laid into the fire.

I’m hoping to get NAMP funding for DNA sampling of NE PA material. I’m open to suggestions regarding types of submissions.

This one is different …..

from other sp-geophylla you’ve collected. Dave, keep collecting and saving the white Inocybe from various locations. In many cases DNA clearly indicates they are NOT the same. I’m working on making some sense of this.
