The old refrain “more investigation required”

don’t these branches strike you guys as unusually thick???

could it be another species of Dendrocollybia from the East Coast?

and speaking of mysteries, any word back on that “Dendrocollybia racemosa” sclerotium DNA analysis?

I just checked the area at Huck where we found sclerotia last year, but no fruit bodies. hardly surprising tho, at this time of year in the west.

there were Amanita phalloides, tho. darned, deadly invasive MR mushroom, not playing by the rules!

It was my last photo(s) of the day! Though, not the last photo of the day… I recall you taking the last photos of the day.

Thanks Walt

I was sitting down while Erin was taking “the last photo of the day” (not likely) and it was just a few feet away from my hand.
