I'm sure this isn't the last fungus of the season... We have learned an amazing amount about them through an incredibly long and wet season and or course thanks to PN .... here's hoping springtime will bring new subjects. Maybe now is a good time go back to correct all the wrong ID's that I'm sure have crept into our collections. John Farnham rules.
