    Beefsteak/ elephant ear

    I would also be interested in a piece of the specimen if possible...to determine the species, not edibility.

    Beefsteak/ elephant ear

    Many species in this group are known to be poisonous. Our midwestern species have never been tested for levels of potential toxins. Many people have eaten them fine for years with no ill effects, but we suggest to avoid them until there is convincing evidence they do not contain detectable levels of the toxin.

    The main reason I use Facebook is for mushrooms. You could always make an account specifically for that purpose. I, too, would wish more people utilize other platforms, but that is just not where people are.

    Look at Tubaria.

    Sorry you are having issues. I do not see any further modifications I can do to the site.

    Examination under microscope

    1. For staining, the most common ones I use are Lactophenol Cotton Blue, Meltzer's Reagent, KOH, Water, and Congo Red. 2. Soak the tissue in H20 first to rehydrate, and then move to your stain. 3. Those are the most common ones. 4. Not reliably.

    Hello Darvin. Your order has been received. It will go out in the mail tomorrow. You could join the Indiana Mushrooms Facebook group for a more active discussion. There are thousands of members in that group, and is where the most active Indiana mushroomers discuss/post. I will refund your membership, as we are not actively taking paid members this year. We will still hold our usual number of forays all around the state.
