This is another cool one.

Very best,


Based upon my description of the habitat…

and my own record for location (edited the location for this observation) I believe I know the exact spot where these were found.

It appears this is something new.

I’m taking a fast pass through nearly 150 raw data files that came in in the last few days from Linas.

Very best,


I’m looking forward to the news from the sequencing.

a couple of provisional species with globose spores found locally. A. cyclops looks somewhat similar, but with deeper marginal striations, a more prominently umbonate disc, and color scheme tending more toward brown than olive. Nothing else comes immediately to mind.
Sampled for DNA sequencing today.

Want to make a guess?
