I haven’t a name to offer yet; however this material represents a species…

that is outside what I suppose we might call the “russuloides group” Also it is not in what we might call the “xylinivolva-praecox group.” Other observations with the same mushroom involved are 98861, 142360, 142550, and 147624.

The range of this critter is from Prov. Ontario to Edo. Puebla. I apparently have material from SC, TX, IN, MO, MS, and GA in the U.S.

Thanks very much for this interesting material.

Very best,


Thanks Patrick,

This material has been recieved and accessioned into Rod’s herbarium.

I’m very glad that people are keeping an eye out for “citrinoid” amanitas.

It think we’re still a little bit early of the group in eastern North America.

Very best,

This probably belongs in sect. Amanita…possibly, A. sp-S01.

Very best,

seems a bit too striate to be Amanita citrina.
