My scope is not powerful enough to make such a determination. However, this is useful info. I’ve recently encountered a question regarding the edibility of V. conica. Given that conica and bohemica can exhibit similar macro traits, the casual pot hunter would do well to consider them as the same (and therefore not eat either of these verpas).
conica has asci with 8 spores; bohemica has asci with two big spores.
sometimes conica can have a wrinkled aspect to its cap (like bohemica), but the microscopy will always tell the tale.
V. bohemica as the species. Actually, I’m curious about telling the difference between these two verpas. The very few conica that I have IDed were small and had virtually smooth caps. I have found large mature specimens of what I considered to be bohemica in which the cap surfaces had smoothed out somewhat, presumably with age. Any suggestions?
so then I just have to put the author’s name below it right?
could I have a copy of it,
to show people how the spores form on these kind of mushrooms?
