Sequences will be available on WAO when they are posted by GenBank.

This is true for all observations for which we have posted that sequences exist. Go to the tech tab of the correct taxon page and look in the “GenBank nos.” data field, which will be in the form of a table. The first column (on the left) provides accession numbers. They are links to GenBank.


So another gray-capped Vaginatae with spores broadly-ellipsoid to ellipsoid.

Very best,


Well, we got a super nrLSU sequence from this material. It looks like we will report…

it as two haplotypes that are sequences varying in only one character. One of the two haplotypes is identical to the nrLSU that was derived previously from Canadian material of “sp-QUE04”.

Late at night.

Very best,


We just got back the nrITS for this species today.

It is not A. rooseveltensis. (I thought it might be.)

The closest match (99.7% pairwise identity, differing in two characters out of 682) is to Amanitasp-QUE04”, of which we’d only previously seen immature material. We don’t know the variation of the ITS sequence of the species; so we need to learn more.

More when we know more.

Very best,


Thank you, Steve.

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?

I have dried (and drying) material of all these specimens

Hi, Steve.

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

Thank you.
