Guest speaker was Judy Mackenroth who gave an introduction to dying with mushrooms.
The highlight for me was the extraordinary Xylaria collected by Cecily Franklin that looks like a Dr. Suess bush. It has long, branching, sterile stems with bulbous fruits on the end. I still have no name for this oddity.
Several of the new names in our list are due to Garrett Taylor.
