Thank you for the material. I’m accessioning it now, and will [EDIT] sample it for the work comparing the DNA in the “crocea group.”

Very best,

Rod

Yes.

It is this mushroom Dr. T. I am on task now with the observation numbers. Thank you for your patience! Jon

I just received a dried collection from an address in Carthage, Missouri; however there was no MO number or other identification in the packet with the mushroom. Was this from you?

Very best,

Rod

This reminds me of the color of a Mexican collection that I made.

I think the photo is on the web on one of the two pages mentioned below. I had gone out to a sparse oak forest in which my colleagues at the Univ. of Tlaxcala liked to collect. The commercial and private collectors had been through earlier in the morning, but they had missed the specimen that looked a bit like the one in your photos because it was growing under a project ledge of dried soil in the mouth of an animal’s burrow!

I saw that vivid slighty brownish red-orange in the tunnel and thought: “Gotcha!”

What a beauty.

Very best,

Rod

Thank you, Jon.

I thought you might want it. Drying now, completely whole. Hopefully in good shape. Will send next week. I was so excited to find it lol!

There doesn’t seem to have been a ring.

Very best,

Rod

I think this is either A. pseudocrocea or A. americrocea

if the two provisional entities are really different.

I would very much like to see the dried specimen, please.

Remember to watch out for things that look like citrina, rubescens, porphyria, or solaniolens. This the year to collect material in theses groups with the hope of getting good sequences and defining how many taxa we have going under these names.

Very best,

Rod
