I have material from Tlaxcala edo. submitted for sequencing. I don’t know if DNA can be obtained from the material yet.

Yes, it is a beautiful species.


nice! quite a broad range for this lovely amanita.

This collection and eight others have been sequenced recently at the Univ. of Tennessee, Knoxville, under the direction of Dr. Karen S. Hughes. The sequences and a summary of results were received on the 1st of October while I was away from the office. The sequences come from material collected in Connecticut, Missouri, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. All this material was judged to be Amanita flavorubens prior to sequencing. All the sequences are in agreement. Hence, it would appear from this evidence that Amanita flavorubens as presently conceived in North America is likely to be a single species.

We got a very clean and complete “barcode” sequence from this collection.

Thank you for your contributions to our research.

Very best,


The material has arrived safely.
