I tried to find it again

I only have one area that is wetland, where I find mushrooms
everything else is too dry

Eva, you are the first in 2013…so far as I know…

The color in your photos suggest that your material is rather pallid. There is a chance that the material will represent one of the round spored species that have been identified under the name citrina in North America. I am very interested to see any material of citrina-like species that you may see in the remainder of your collecting season in 2013. Since Amanita brunnescens f. straminea (a mis-named member of the North American citrina group) was described from material found in the U.S. state of Michigan, it is quite possible that it would also be found in Ontario. I have examined the original collection at the University of Michigan, and I now think that the misnamed taxon is the pallid citrina-like amanita that is not a complex hybrid and has round spores—Amanitasp-lavendula03.” It would be very, very interesting to know whether all the material we have from the U.S. that we have called Amanitasp-lavendula03” is genetically identical to your material or not.





Thank you for this posting.

Very best,
