Got something to discuss?
Recently found (potentially) this species in the suburbs of Atlanta, GA. The collection is on Mushroom Observer (Observation 329697), just FYI. Is this enough to updated distribution
Are you offering those photos for use? I have asked several top field experts to look at your observation and let me know if the ID is solid enough to meet our standards. Georgia has no separate regional filter, so you would be using the regional “Southern” one. B. durhamensis is already included in that. We create new regional filters (like a proposed “Georgia” one) only when there is a really expert, decades-long life list to use as a basis. That can be either a renowned local expert (Bill Yule for Connecticut) or an organization (the Western Pa. Mushroom Club’s 25-year-long record, or the comparable one for the Asheville, NC club).
Sorry for not responding, didn’t set me email for notifications I don’t believe. And yes you can use these pictures if you ever need to for anything. As far as your comments regarding region, I was just pointing out that the distribution could be updated to include GA (provided the collection is legitimate) for example in the comments section, it says NC and VA only.
