Queensland Mycological Society is targeting population samples of Suillus luteus, S.quiescens, S. granulatus, S. collinitis, S bovinus and S. corthurnatus (5-10 sporocaps collected in the same area) and asking people to look out for these Slippery Jacks which are out now among pine trees.
Records should be sent to email@example.com and preferably include:
- record of the pine host
- a fresh spore print (single cap only and a dried voucher (small slice OK)
- if possible, fresh tissue in CTAB vial (.5g) or cultures.
