Our specimens were identified based on Singer's (1949) description, who reported the following features: robust basidiomata with dark colored pileus, basidiospores size (4.3-8 x 3.7-5 [mu]m), absence of pleuro- and cheilocystidia, presence of versiform pseudoparaphyses and pileipellis a cutis of incrusted brown pigments.
The spore Q value is more than 1.8 and the colour of the pileus is deep reddish brown as given for European H.

The most surprising painting in the exhibit is "Pileus" (2009), partly because of its graphic use of iconography and visible contrast between background and foreground.

Nine updated papers discuss such topics as historical climate trends in Michigan and the Great Lakes region, the power of understanding judgment and decision processes, whether uncertain information is usable knowledge for agricultural adaptation to climate change, linking science to decision making in the region, and the Pileus Project as an example of the development and communications of an ensemble of local-scale climate scenarios.
