I noticed this on one of my specimens, perhaps a chemcial reaction during the stage in its cycle.

This mushroom was NOT cloned but does appear in MotRC…

And know right where they are at. We’ll see if Stamets has any interest in freeing up his busy schedule to clone this strain to add to his 58 others…

nice find, Tim…
