make sp-GSM07 more likely than albemarlensis…in my opinion…


Interesting about David’s observation, Igor.

It’s certain an over the hill specimen, but it could be the same species. Unfortunately, we’ll never know. David said it was too far gone to try to keep.

Very best,


Thank you, dario.z…

Dave W just posted an amanita with a zonate cap looking very similar to this one and proposed A. rhacopus for his collection:

I think that Igor’s suggestion is a plausible one.

I don’t know how many zonate-capped species of the Vaginatae occur in the eastern U.S., but from the photos this material could be “sp-GSM07,” which apparently has a range from southern New Jersey to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Dried material from the Monticello collecting site would be very welcome for purposes of comparison with specimens from New Jersey and GSMNP.

Very best,
