For awhile I really wondered about the outer surface not being hairy enough for Humaria. But it looks like there are patches of erect hairs. My thinking was that this specimen is somewhat weathered, with the hairs washed away or tangled together into little bunches. Mid September through mid October was extremely wet around here.

Just checked out Arora. His comments under Humaria led me to Jafnea semitosta on Mushroom Observer. Here Kuo mentions J. fusicarpa as a small light colored species.

Oh, as for the multiple postings of the seemingly identical Humaria proposals. It appears the original version contained a misplaced comma.

Wondering why the same ID name is posted twice….? Apparently someone believed that my initial Humaria proposal was way off base, for reasons unstated. But then the same proposal was posted a second time. ?
