On a cut surface of a pine log, near the ground, in wet area. Very slippery. Difficult to extract the stem and to handle.

These would be very useful. If you could send the majority of the collection to Dr. D. Jean Lodge (address listed below), she will examine it and then the collection will be sent on to an herbarium, possibly BRIT in Texas unless you have a different preference. A small piece of the collection should also be sent to Dr. Scott Redhead (address listed below) who will be doing the sequencing. This could be a small part of a single fruiting body and could be sent in a regular letter envelope. Crushing would not be a significant issue here.

The mushrooms were stored one day in a refrigerator and then dried at night. They could be sent if necessary.

Excellent find!

Did you preserve this? I am involved in some research on Chromosera and would be very interested in acquiring a collection of this if possible.
