Observation 109740: Amanita “sp-V03” Tulloss cryptonom. temp.

Proposed Names

26% (2)
Recognized by sight: Not much in the way of a volva — fragments probably still buried — did remove it from below the end of the stalk.
27% (1)
Recognized by sight: See comments below. Typical of the group around Amanita sororcula this species has a very distinctive black ring around the lower stipe when dried. This ring is well separated from the cup-like (small) remnants of the volva on the stipe base.

I’ll use some of these illustrations for the new web page.

Thanks for permitting acknowledged use of same.

Very best,


As we continue to amass data on rhacopus-like collections,…

we find that we have to make a change in our temporary name for the possible taxon to which your material from this observation belongs.

The picture of the rhacopus-like taxa that we’re getting from DNA is getting more complex.

We’ve discovered that the best genetic match for the material from this observation is the original collection to which I applied the temporary code “sp-V03”. At the moment, the original (Virginia) collection and the present material seem to be genetically separable from the other rhacopus-like taxa of eastern North America. Hence, it seems best to revive that temporary code name and distinguish it as separate from rhacopus.

I’m swamped right now, but we will aim to restore the webpage for “sp-V03” on the WAO site.

Very best,

We obtained a barcode sequence for this taxon in recent days. It is a best match to the group that we have identified as Amanita sp-T01. This is the first Missouri collection of this taxon. We are uncertain as to how to identify the species morphologically at this point.

We are finding four taxa mixed in the group that people have called ceciliae in eastern Canada and the eastern U.S.

Thanks for sending this material.

Very best,


Thanks, Patrick. I received this collection yesterday. EDITED

I think that this is probably a species of sect. Vaginatae, possibly close to Amanita rhacopus or Amanita sp-T01 (if the two are different species).

Very best,
