Notes: On mossy ground under balsam fir in mixed woods. Cap, gills, stem whitish with a slight yellowish cast (some photos taken on 8/11/13 were taken under artificial light and are not good indicators of color which I would describe as cream or yellow white—see photos taken on 8/12/13 in natural light).

means “frosty rose”. Hence, the “Frost Rose Ringless Amanita.” The epithet should be in quotes.

This turns out to be a new species, which DNA helped us to segregate and recognize in four collections from Maine and the Island of Newfoundland.

Thank you very much.

Very best,

Rod

I was letting it open up overnight so I could take measurements before drying it. I will send it along to you when dry.

Amanita homolae, for the late Maine mycologist, Dr. Richard Homola.

If you find it again, I would be very interested in seeing material.

Very best,
