Let me say that I have plenty of the red muscaria-like material from your neck of the woods. I don’t need any more of that for the herbarium.

Species of sect. Vaginatae (whether they can be identified or not) are of particular interest to me.

If you post everything on MO, then we have a way of communicating about collections. If you think I’ve missed something important on MO, you can use the email feature on my MO user page to reach me.

Very best,


Sure Rod-

All amanitas I come in contact with that are in good condition- I’ll make sure to save for your herbarium collection.

Hope you are having an excellent season thus far!

If you get some nice material like this and can dry it for my research, I’d really like to take a look at it.

Very best,


Thanks Rod!
