This material has been recieved and accessioned into Rod’s herbarium. We have scheduled it for DNA sequencing.

I would tend to think drying has something to do with that

Drying has something to do with everything around here. Conditions right now are pretty dry. I think a lot of the variation amongst fruit bodies of a single taxon is due to the quickly changing environment here in the southwest. One place is wet, a half mile away its dry, and wet can turn dry in a day. It makes collecting challenging as well. That banding could be analogous the the aerolate cracking of some mushroom caps.

I should be able to ship the specimens probably tomarrow, Monday latest.

This collection is interesting because of the stipe decoration that was absent…

in most of your other postings.

Another reason to compare collections that are, or look like, Amanita cochiseana.

Very best,
