Does the other specimen with this MO number (the grayish capped one) have a different MO # assigned to it?

I apologize, the specimen for this observation is the yellow capped one

We received your material. Two of the bags of dried mushrooms had this MO number, one has a yellow cap, and one appears to be grey. Could you clarify which specimen # goes with which mushroom?

Jimmy, If you’d like to send the dried collection to us…

Very best,


Because the yellow pigment is not restricted… (EDIT)

to the very center of the cap, I think that this is more likely to be “A. praecox” Y. Lamoureux nom. prov.

See http://www.amanitaceae.org?Amanita+praecox

EDIT: However, I haven’t heard of it being in Georgia; so I would also have to consider “A. sp-S01.”


Very best,
