“H. lacunosa s.s. is not in North America” Too Strong given the few samples in the study.

These things were coming up all over the place (in the East Bay hills, anyway) in the day or two prior to the current rain. I collected, cooked, and ate a pound or so on Tuesday … much like Chinese cloud ears, only fresher.
