    :iagree::mush1: Can't wait to see when you next visit the Baeo mycellium beast in that field, it has probably missed your assistance with the spore distribution and might make you visit a few times before rewarding you

    so....just wondering, what is your reason for going with I. Rimosa? Not that I doubt you, I just know inocybes are a diverse genus with many unidentified species

    heres an idea why http://www.mushroomexpert.com/inocybe_rimosa.html

    its where they lump all non descript inocybes that noone cares about. if i did the microscopy, it could turn out that noone has ever named the shroom i found ... so they throw it in as I. rimosa

    Dude I call a protest!!!

    Quote from your link:

    If there is a mushroom that epitomizes the genus Inocybe--and why it is that the mushrooms in this genus are so unpopular among amateur (and professional) mushroom folks--it is Inocybe rimosa, also known as Inocybe fastigiata. It looks like literally dozens of other Inocybes--and even under the microscope it is confusingly indistinguishable.

    Dude, I'm just jerking your chain. I just thought it was funny when you posted that link and I finally got around to reading it. I'm not interested in getting a freebie, I'm just trying to learn how to ID. It was a joke, I'm not calling you out. :gavel:

    :laugh: Peace brother.
