    Pseudoboletus parasiticus parasitizing Scleroderma citrinum. Photographed last night at Mycofest in Pennsylvania with a Convoy C8 365 nm UV flashlight and Acebeam PT40 white LED flashlight. I noticed this bolete was fluorescent by running the UV light over the specimen table at night.

    Yes, 2022 will be even better, with a larger venue that has more nature nearby.
