Most of my posting here in iNaturalist are my own, but a few could be collections from a Foray, or from a friend.
I have been interested in and curious about mushrooms since I was a child growing up in the Basque country, where, traditionally, mushrooms are viewed with a mystical mix of devotion and terror. Now that I am retired (I was involved in manufacturing in Meridian, Idaho for many years) I spent quite a lot of time studying the taxonomy of fungi, an activity in which I find enjoyment and purpose. I use microscopy often, and recently doing DNA sequencing on some of them.
