Sorry, it was only a couple day trip, with only a couple hours free each day. Thought I could get in some photos of the local species, but no way to collect anything (other than some deer ticks…).

Oh, wow!

I wish you had dried material. This looks very interesting. It looks quite a bit like Amanita polypyramis, which I don’t remember being known from Long Island.

Yes, that’s right…at least as far as the NJ/Long Island checklist goes on the Amanita Studies site. If we have a Long Island club lurker, maybe he/she can tell us if the above species is known from Long Island.
