My favorite MushroomObserver visitors are those focusing on a particular genus or group, able to finally make heads or tails of the many un-/mis-identified observations in their purview. In addition to your Otidea contributions, we seem to have Mollisia, Psilocybe, Cortinarius, Coprinus s.l. and Lepiota s.l. covered (I’m sure I’m forgetting some).

And besides, it’s about time we saw some AscoFrance-MushroomObserver crossover. Welcome and thanks again.
