Thank you!

I find Crusts, Resupinates and Brackets so interesting. You can see why experts focus on a particular group of fungi -there are so many similar species in each to say nothing of variation within species. The trouble is I find them all fascinating! As always I end up 'Jack of all trades master of none'.
