I hope you see that little lady again soon.

Very best,


I didn’t save that one, alas.

But I will know next time that it is different enough to be interesting.

I notice that I have never seen A. levistriata from Missouri.

This year MO observations of what is apparently levistriata have come from well north of the Gulf Coast states…up until now, I had never heard of it from outside that region.

Interesting collection, Patrick.

Very best,


I hope that this one expands a bit more.

Spores would be very useful. The color of the volva suggests Amanita sp-N50 or A. laevistriata.

Very best,
