To crop or not to crop!

We used MO postings as the documentation of the corresponding herbarium specimens. It is impossible to improve the state of the specimens themselves by cropping their images.

We use the generic conccept to fit the UBC herbarium system where we deposit our collections. I can asure you that the mushrooms themeselves do not care how they are called.

Yahoo! You have a beautiful specimen.

It needs a name and description to go with it; Oluna’s drawings are a great start. I suppose it could be a tropical species that just happened to visit BC…, I hope both you and J. Duane are monitoring the swamp for a repeat appearance.

Also, Adolf, ‘Do you ever crop your photos?’. This one is asking for it IMHO!

All you need is Noordelos complete library; Jay Justice brought a substantial piece of it to the NAMA foray in Front Royal, VA earlier this month. Of course, he has not worked in BC, his largest volumes are dedicated to Europe.

It would be very easy for you to go into the preferences /profile of your MO account and choose the option that allows you to maintain the owner’s preferred name. Why don’t you do that here?

nifty, guys.

How does this compare to Entoloma catalaunicum?
