that belong to the Vaginatae and have a raggedy (but real) partial veil.

Your collection would extend the range of the species from Baton Rouge to Virginia. Pretty substantial.

So I would definitely like to see your collection very much. :)

Thank you for the offer.

Very best,

but lots of hickory trees and oaks in the area.

Yes I did dry the specimen in the photo! Would you like me to send it?

Also, I saw two additional specimens of what appeared to be the same thing nearby the next day, but unfortunately I was not able to photograph or collect them.

Best wishes
