I am very interested in your specimens and hope to see them.

We have just added DNA sequences to the Amanitaceae Studies website for many North American species in sect. Caesareae. My colleagues tell me that now is the time to move forward with more material; hence, I’m posting this in hopes that you still have dried material of this pale-stemmed, red-capped species.

Very best,

I’m very glad to hear that you have dried material of this species. There is an on-going molecular study of the Caesareae in two different labs. I will want to support examination of your material both microscopically and from a molecular point of view. I hope that others who have posted what appears to be this taxon in the last month of so will also contribut material…so that we have dried specimens and photographs from multiple sites.

The stem is more of a yellow color, but the gills are not orange/yellow. They appear white.

The volva is sack like. but were badly aged due to rain so I could not observe the true color.

Also, I have several specimens I have been meaning to send you Rod from several collections of a few different Amanita species, I will be shipping them tomorrow.

Again, no orange on the stem.

We need dried material of this critter.


What color & shape is the volva?
