Observation 127814: Amanita Pers.
When: 2013-01-31

Notes: These were (I believe) the same mushroom as observation 123232 though these were much more substantial. The cogwheeled rims at the top of the bulbs were quite fascinating, and much more pronounced than in the previous observation. I saved these specimens as well, and they will be mailed to Dr. Tulloss along with the single specimen from the previous observation. I must have been mistaken before, because these were found under a large, old, sprawling tree which I believe to be oak. Photos included.

Dr. Tulloss has received material from this collection.

The fact that the site’s usage is increasing so strongly is something of a reward in itself.

Producing pictures and specimens that are hard to identify is also a real contribution.

Very best,

Rod

Thanks for taking a look.

I thought about section Pantherinae because of that funky rim on the bulb, but couldn’t find a good fit which consistently lost (or never had?) the annulus. Could also have been torn off growing up through the gritty sandy substrate.

I’m glad I could contribute to the Amanitaceae site. I use it so often and it’s such an amazing asset. I only wish I could contribute in a larger way.

Thank you for calling my attention to this observation.

As you know, for personal reasons, I have backed out of the automatic notification feature of mushroomobserver.org temporarily.

This is an interesting collection, much stubbier than usual for “sp-S01” and the volval remnants at the bottom of the stipe are not what would be expected for the species, which normally has a limbate volva.

I’m hoping that to have a goodly set of samples of “sp-S01” sent for DNA sequencing before the end of March. The point is to attach information about the so-called “fungal barcode” gene to the provisional name, and to see if there is more than one species in the russuloides/“sp-S01”/etc. “complex” in eastern North America. The material from this observation can go with the others. I’ll bet it will be a match to something more pantherina-like from the looks of it.

I will report back when possible.

Also, I want to publicly thank you for your generous donation to the www.amanitaceae.org website.

Very best,

Rod
