I like your new photo. However, I will miss the old one of you with your walking stick.

Very best,

for the update
As you can see from the new name, Dr. Hughes was able to derive at least on sequence.

And from that sequence we know this is the true A. lavendula, which is a new combination (raising the taxon to species rank) that will be published in the very near future.

Thank you for this material.

Very best,


Thanks Eva,

This material has been received and accessioned into Rod’s herbarium. We have scheduled it to be sampled for DNA sequencing.

Thank you, Eva, as always.

I believe that this may be the “American citrina” that was named…A. brunnescens f. straminea.

The very pale cap suggesting the color of straw is a possible character for this taxon.

The American citrina project is seeking dried collections of lavendula-like taxa from states and provinces other than those from which we already have plentiful collections.

The list of locations for each of the three genetically separated taxa can be found in the “material examined” data fields of the technical tabs on these pages:


If you have a new collection from a state/province or county not listed in those material examined data fields, you’re invited to (1) post the information about your collection along with pictures on MO, (2) dry the material well, and (3) send the material to the group in Roosevelt, NJ, with whom I work:

Herbarium Rooseveltensis Amanitarum,
P. O. Box 57,
Roosevelt, NJ 08555-0057, USA.

We will catalog and preserve each collection, sample it, and send the sample to the folks at the Univ. of Tennessee, Knoxville, to be available for the study of citrinoid material in North America (Canada, Mexico, and U.S.).

2013 is the year for the collecting part of this project. Especially if you collect in a state not listed for all three of the distinct taxa listed above, we really would like to have you participating so that we can understand the limits of the ranges of the three taxa.

Good luck with your hunting.

Very best,
