I live in Olympia, WA state- so, not going to be able to return until next summer when we vacation in the mid West again.

here’s a link to the attached observation of R.badius from that same day last week.

1. Can you provide a link to the earlier observation you mention in the notes?

2. Will you be returning to check on changes in cap coloration?
