I left all my collections from this walk with David at the Field Station. I’m not sure if he saved any of them.
I will be posting other Amanita collections that I did save.
Unfortunately, I didn’t realize this species might still be of interest.

lucky you, Ron.

Nice group, Ron. Good pix, as always.

Are you going to let any of them expand?

We’d love to have some more material one way or the other. Cristina is aiming on wrapping up her study of this species and A. cruzii this year. Another ITS sequence is not going to hurt. A lot of my material was a bit old for extraction of good ITS.

Very best,
