Interesting analysis of the primordium development.

Yes, I was with Dr. Henkel most of June. It was quite a trip! Although we didn’t collect DNA from this specimen, Terry Henkel does have this species in his personal herbarium at Humboldt State University. Cheers,


You must be (or were) in the area where Dr. Henkel has been working, right?

Oh, what a beautiful picture…I’m looking at the top one.

The development of the fruiting body in the primoridium is very clearly concentrated in the upper half of the primordium and the stem will not develop in the totally elongating manner. There is clearly a bulb from the outset inside the volval sac. It’s very clearly the case that the species (with a sack at the base of the bulb) is in sect. Amanita. I’m sure you probably know about this already, Thomas. I’m just so happy to see the pictures.

No specimen, eh?

Did you recover DNA or any other form of voucher to go with the photograph?

Very best,

Rod Tulloss
