This material has been accessioned. Unfortunately, the sequencing of material in sect. Vaginatae has been delayed (beyond our control). When we learn more, we’ll post it.

Very best,


Well,…. [EDIT]

we recently got DNA from several geographically distributed collections; so we can now compare morphology as well a “barcode” sequence. You probably know the story of me thinking that I may have two taxa mixed together under that number (17). Well, we are beginning to get DNA sequences for a number of geographically segregated collections of the gray species with ellipsoid spores. It looks like there is one that was found in western PA at the 2011 NAMA foray that is morphologically and genetically distinct from the one in lawns all around New Jersey under oaks. The question now is are there three such taxa? Or more? We ought to have a better idea after several more months.

Then, I hope, we can post provisional names and descriptions on WAO.


Anything new with old sp. 17?

Please put me on the list of persons who would like some your dried material of this species.

Thank you.
