New Yorker with a particular interest in Inocybacae and coprophilous fungi, but generally enchanted by fungi of any kind. I do PCR at home and will attach DNA sequence data and GenBank accession numbers to fungi where possible. Currently serving as president of the New York Mycological Society, and co-lead of the Green-Wood Cemetery Fungi Phenology Project. Also contributor to DNAMA, FunDiS board member and FunDiS volunteer sequence validator.
