Thank you, again, Eva. … EDITED

I am glad to report, that one again, the DNA extracted from an eastern North American white muscarioid specimen says that it is the dominant North American muscarioid entity and not something new.

We continue to search for more white muscarioids from the eastern parts of the U.S. and Canada and are particularly interested in specimens from the U.S. states of Michigan and New York or adjacent states and provinces. This year we got very little material from our target area.

Thanks to Eva for this one.

Very best,


Great find…

… and even more wonderful that there is molecular work being done on this specimen!

Thanks Eva

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

Please don’t worry about it.

These things happen. Maybe it is still possible to extract DNA.

No matter whether we can use the material or not, I am very grateful to you for doing your best to gather the material for me.

Very best,


I’m sorry

you did mot got a good spaciment.

went on vacation to Nevada.

I gave to my neighbors: two totally dry spaciment and one which needed another day to be dry, to send them.

We have had to redry the material.

Perhaps, the specimens were not completely dry when they were placed in the plastic shipping bag. A mold began to grow on the paper in which the specimens were wrapped. We have redried the material and are saving only the parts that redried well. We will proceed with sending a sample of the material to Dr. Geml…in case he can extract DNA.

Thanks for your efforts.

Very best,


Thanks again, Eva.

I have a sample

I think that this could be A. chrysoblema again.

Is this from the wrong side of the door to the Hidden Garden…again?
