I am not an mushroom expert…it is just a hobby…supposing I find again several specimens…what do you want me to do with them?….

Thank you.

What I need is a small set of dried specimens that range from immature to sufficiently mature to produce a spore print, but not much older. Two or three specimens would be sufficient. I am interested both in the microscopic morphology (in detail, not just spores) and in having material that can be sampled for the purposes of sequencing at least two commonly sequenced genes.

There is a particular interest at present in North America to see if any of the European names that are still in use are correctly used. In most cases of ectomycorrhizal fungi, we have found that such names are not being correctly used when applied in the Americas. These efforts started before the availability of genetic studies, but have accelerated in recent years.

I very much appreciate your interest.

If you have additional questions and want to take them up off-line. You can reach me through the “Contact us” feature here:


Very best,

I might get there again in a couple of days, and get another one….

I would be very interested to see some. There seem to be many different cap colors on specimens referred to A. gemmata. I have absolutely white material from Turkey and material from France with beautiful yellow caps with orange in the center. Scandinavian material is a light tan. Perhaps there are more than one species involved?

Thank you for your response.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss

I’ve found a lot :)

Too bad that there’s no specimen. EDIT

It could have been very interesting to examine. Interesting pictures.
