Yes, I preserved this. I can certainly send this to you in the near future.

Hi there,
My name is Nattapol. I’m a Ph.D. student at the University of Florida. I’m studying bird’s nest fungi and saw your post. Did you happen to collect this Nidularia specimen? I’d like to borrow and use them for evolutionary analysis. Is it possible for you to send the specimens to us in Florida? We’re willing to pay for shipment if need to.

Thank you so much!
