I seen a few of them out there so I can probably get you a couple. The first time that I found this species was in the same area growing directly under chestnut.

Very enviable photos…

Two of the best photos that I’ve seen of what should be such a photogenic species, but…

Thanks for posting! And “near chestnut”!! I don’t think I’ve seen that before for this species. I’d be very interested in documented material of parcivolvata from near chestnut if you have the time for drying, etc.

Very best,
