I just collected a large Amanita of the group rubecens, and I have the full specimen dehydrated and stored, are you interested in this?


Thank you, Justin.

I just got some questions on the project from Eric Smith. You can see the exchange on MO #109096. We’re not looking for a lot of stuff from one place; we’re looking for material from a variety of collecting sites (different counties, different states) as well as a variety of material. I emphasized the citrinoid material in postings to people who recent report citrinoid collections; however, we are also looking for rubescent amanitas (read that term broadly…to include more than the most “rubescens” of your collecting region) and things that people have called “solaniolens.” No secret that I can distinguish what I think are different morphological species under these names. At least one of the project goals is to test my draft morphological species and look for surprises afforded by the DNA studies. I’m looking to some interesting months ahead.

Very best,


You got it sir.

I will find more, and will save them, I hunt every day and have passed up many already.

If you find this again in 2013, …

If you find this again in 2013, it would be great if you could dry it and post on MO about it.

This year there is a project to obtain “citrina-like” specimens from as much of North America as possible, for DNA analsysis.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss
