  1. Great capture and much respect for ID-ing it, I wouldn't know where to start. Posted 5 days ago
    1. Thanks! I thought the common name was pretty funny. I had no idea where to start with an ID either, and luckily got an ID on MO! They got it to genus level for me, and then I took it to species. This genus was new to me :). Posted 5 days ago
  2. Another great name! Posted 5 days ago
    1. I agree! Fairy Cakes is another common name for it...But, I prefer Poison Pie, lol. Posted 4 days ago
