Very best,


This collection will be part of the formal description of the “hybrid swarm”…

species. A paper with Dr. Karen Hughes as first author is in draft. It will describe the very unusual genetic phenomenon represented by the present species. This collection has been utilized in making the description; hence, it will be part of the original material of the new species.

Very best,


I decided to use the first picture.

It is in good focus, and it shows a yellow center to the cap as well as some of the color changes that can happen with the patches of the volva on the cap.

I know I don’t have to ask about the pictures, but I’m old fashioned.

Thanks again.

Very best,

you can take any photo an M. O.
Without specifically asking me

I’m glad to help.

I just got the results on DNA sequencing of this collection.

Very cool, in my humble opinion.

This is the first example of the infraspecific hybrid species we’re temporarily calling “sp-lavendula01” that has been derived from Canadian material. The known range of this taxon extends southward to Florida and from state of Missouri in the west to Cape Cod, Massachusetts in the east.

What we’ve managed to post on the WAO website is here:


Thanks for your contribution to the study of this genetically curious mushroom.

I’d like to use one of your images on the website if you have no objection.

Very best,


Thanks Eva,

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