Well, just think what the bomb sniffing dogs are making of your package now…

I found some like this in among spruce cones once, and put in time trying to find some spores to get a better species name. And I didn’t find any spores, at all. I think these are some that don’t produce very many spores, but stay out there for some time… so good luck on finding the spores, even after you find the dried material…

I don’t think I dried one of these…

but if I ever get my box of dessicata, I’ll check.

BTW, fungus fanciers, here’s a weird heads-up…when I complained to my postal person that I hadn’t received my boxes mailed almost two weeks ago, she said…did you list yourself as the return address? Well, yes, I did, since I was(also including the address where I was staying). Oh, she replied, we treat those as terrorist threats!!!

The world has gone mad…and my fungi are being held hostage!

Checked spores?

Clavariadelphus ligula is similar, only with smaller spores.

sachalinensis: 17-22 × 4-6 microns
ligula: 9-14 × 3-4,5 microns
