…this particular specimen but I can easily obtain one for you from the same flush. These mushrooms are literally growing right outside my office window. I’ll secure a nice fresh example for you tomorrow, dry it, and would be happy to send it to you if you would like to provide an address. I have a second collection from the same site that I haven’t had a chance to post yet, will do that soon.

I believe this may be Limacella sp-L-IL01 if the stipe is dry.

I would like to confirm that with DNA sequencing; however. I see that a dried specimens was not retained.

Very best,
