|While Termitomyces do have somewhat distinctive morphology, to absolutely identify them as such and to see which species of termite they are associating with the farm and stipe of the fruiting body are carefully excavated.|
|Yet another species. These "farms" are larger.|
|The small white lumps are almost ready to be harvested.|
Many thanks to termite researcher Dr. Yamada, who took me out to see the local termites and Termitomyces.
