Hello, DCart

I’m very interested in material that has been photographed, posted on MO, and dried. As much additional information as is feasible (like dimensions of the fruit body) are also very welcome.

If you email me via the MO email function, I’ll send you a workbook that explains how we collect, annotate, etc. amanita specimens.

Very best,

Rod

I have some dried specimens available if anyone wants to DNA or miscroscope these mushrooms.

I think this is close to Amanita flavoconia in…

Amanita section Validae. Reservations: (1) The partial veil is almost always yellow in flavoconia. (2) Some genetic research in China has shown that their taxon most similar to flavoconia (__flavipes___) is actually a conglomeration of a number of separate similar taxa. Some evidence suggests we will find the same thing to be true in eastern North America. So I’ll suggest the section name at this point.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss
