McDowell is calling it, Balfour will not. What say you? Are these Hydnellum geogenium?
As has been stated many, many times McDowell can’t resist teethy mushrooms. And when she came upon these on Mount Elphinstone, Balfour was way up the trail. So she’s on her own here and after checking books and internet McDowell is going out on a limb to say this is Hydnellum geogenium.
But she will certainly listen to reason…
