I’m sorry to say that this material was immature.

No spores could be measured. Nevertheless, we have sampled for DNA sequencing.

This material has been received in good order.

Thank you, Patrick.

I should explain that I first thought this species might be one that I had seen years ago on the NAMA Gulf Coast foray near Biloxi. However, I found a brief note on that specimen (retained by another mycologist at the time and not available to me now) and found that was much more reminiscent of A. spreta than is the present entity.

Yes, I think there is a good chance that you found the species… [significantly edited]

that John had previously posted here:

I am a bit puzzled by it. [edit: paragraphs removed]

With a largely friable volva, this is a very unusual entity to place in sect. Caesareae. On the other hand, there seems to be no evidence of a bulb at the stipe base, which would eliminate sect. Amanita. I’m very inclined to think that the spores will be inamyloid in John’s material (see above).

Thanks for the extra push on this one. More later.

Very best,

Rod
