my own lack of more thorough photo documentation frustrates me, because all we can do to proceed from here is to make a guessing game of possible genera. In my humble defense, this series is going on two years old. Future forays will be noticeably more up to par (photomicroscopy, immediate area species IDs, soil & air temp, geotags, etc.).

It’s a long way to reach back in the mental filing cabinet, but I seem to remember that the general consensus was that these were Gasteromycetes. I’ve bugged Larry to climb aboard the MO ship for ages to lend a hand discussing these collections, seeing as he and I made them together. Alas, try as i might, the Luddite geezer in him resists.
