The volval collar on the upper part of the bulb does appear redder than I remember. Same issue as with the other amanita you commented on — the sunset sun & the flash “polluting” the image with longer wavelengths. At least the partial veil under the cap still looks the original color.

Wishing you a quick recovery from the March on Washington bug.

Igor, these photographs re much more red that the original material which was more tan.

The voval warts were also a purer yellow. Before they went into the dryer, I thought they would be sp-36.

Then I got a bad cold and sore throat that I apparently brought home on the bus from the March on Washington memorial marh on Friday.

So I have no new information for you.

Very best,


Yep, Debbie
