December 1, 2019:  NOTE ABOUT SEQUENCING - Sequencing services will be temporarily unavailable for Mycoflora Grant specimens while we test the sequencing service provided by Barcode of Life Data Systems (BOLD) in Guelph, Ontario. It may be the first or second quarter of 2020 before we are ready to accept Grant specimens for sequencing again.

If you have Grant specimens ready to sequence, or if you want to continue collecting as opportunities arise, the best strategy is to “Tag, Bag, and Hold” them. Collect and document as usual, following the protocols on the Mycoflora.org website. Keep your precious discoveries safe and when we confirm our new sequencing service we will notify project leaders. Tag, Bag and Hold is your best strategy!


USING FIELD DATA SLIPS:  One way any mushroom hunter can contribute significant value to science is by saving collections of the mushrooms they encounter. An easy way to organize these collections and collect valuable field data is by filling out a "Field Data Slip" for each specimen you intend to save. When participating in a foray or while out on a hike, simply take a picture of the slip with the specimen and store the slip with the sample. This allows the number on the slip to be recorded/associated with the images and it records the size of the specimen, as each slip has a ruler on the side. The numbers make organization easy when you are dealing with many specimens and images. It also ensures the most important data is preserved which increases the scientific value of your collections.

DRYING:  When you dry the specimen, cut off the number bottom portion of the slip above “Voucher Label for Drying” and keep it with the specimen so it can stay organized while drying. Mushrooms will change their size, color, and shape as they dry, often making it impossible to sort out which species is which unless your specimens are labeled during the drying process.

VOUCHERS:  Once your specimens are dry, put the main (top) portion of the Field Data Slip in a resealable bag with the specimen. After uploading your photos to iNaturalist of Mushroom Observer, add the iNat or MO # to the Field Data Slip.

NOTE: We will not use the small number in the bottom right, “Tissue Label.”  Instead you will use the unique iNaturalist of Mushroom Observer number for each observation you post online. You can print or write these numbers on the vials sent for sequencing. These numbers, rather than Field Data Slip numbers, will be used in tracking your specimens to the sequencing facility and fungarium.


Each notepad contains 50 slips that are individually numbered.
