Hi Jo!

Thanks for posting this Observation and for the photos.

1. Thanks also for proposing a name for this Observation.

“Jelly fungus bogbod 25% (1)”

However, MO uses real scientific (latinized) names. If you don’t know the real scientific name, simply leave the What field blank. (MO will automatically fill in “Fungi”.) Even better, take a few seconds to try to find the scientific name, for instance by web search.

Please don’t use common names or make up other names (e.g., “Tree Things, IDK”). That creates more work for other users and the admins. (And the made-up or common Name will likely disappear, so you can’t rely on it to find an Observation.)

Using scientific names improves the quality, and searchability of MO Observations. If you follow the practice of using scientific names, it will become easier for you.

2. Each MO Observation should have a named Location (other than “Earth”) in the “Where” field, even if you enter the exact Latitude and Longitude (both of which are optional). A named Location adds scientific value to your Observation, aids in identification, enables some of MO’s search functionality, and can help you connect with other MO users.
To add a named Location:
- click Edit Observation,
- then, in the Where field, enter a named location.
You can use a named Location which does not reveal the exact spot where you observed the mushroom.
