You will see that I screwed up on one of my name changes yesterday. I don’t know how I managed to do it, but I applied rubescens var. alba to what should have been sp-amerirubescens04. I think I fixed the mess I created in the observation. All my notes, herbarium label, everything disagrees with the name I posted. Very sorry.


Very best,


You’re welcome, Rod.

Thornhurst is the nearest town to this location. I provided the extra info because of possible confusion with other locations in NE PA which have similar names.

Thanks for the tree data.

Thank you for this material, David.

It is genetically identifiable as Amanita sp-amerirubescens02; so now we know what that species looks like at maturity with a dried pileus. Great.

Very best,


Thanks David,
