Do you have a copy of the amanita workbook that Cristina Rodgriguez Caycedo and I put together a couple of years ago?

If not, then I’d be glad to send a PDF to you.

Send me email via MO so that I get an email address to which I can send the PDF.

Very best,


I am thrilled to re-arrange my collecting habits Dr. T.

I found a full basket of mushrooms that day and the small Amanita was destroyed and lost somewhere at the bottom of it. I will carry some containers for any more Amanita finds, I promise! Additionally, I’ll keep checking my friends country yard where this was found. Some cool Cantharellus spectaculus (possibly) found there also. Sending the Amanita sect. Vaginatae speciman today. Jon

Another collection going to or from work?


I think you’ve put the right name on it.

Here in Roosevelt, we are just about to start shipping samples of rubescent taxa for DNA sampling at Dr. Hughes’ lab (Univ. of Tennessee, Knoxville).

If you can get some fresh material of this mushroom, we’d love to get it into the mix we’re sending to Knoxville.

Very best,
