Another possibility is sp-M01.

It is like flavoconia with more red in the cap color.

The flavoconia-flavipes group are distributed in eastern and southern Asia as well as in eastern North America and from Mexico to the Colombian Andes. I hear that some work is going on with the Asian group.

Very best,


One of the characteristics of var. inquinata is the orange pigmen on the stem.

I don’t think these guys are pigmented on the stem. Another possibility for Florida (from which var. inquinata is not (yet) known is Amanita sp-F14 or Amanita sp-36. These suggestions may lead you to other undescribed eastern US species that are more likely to be in Florida that var. inquinata, which appears to have a range from below the northern Mexican deserts to Andean Colombia.

I can’t schedule sampling this specimen at the moment, but I will when we can get to it, if you would like to send the material this way. We may have a chance to look at the spores in the meantime.

Very best,


Excellent Herbert
