amanitas were not abundant…

but we had quite a few representatives.

no grisettes, no section amanita, a variety of lepidellas (polypyramis, rhopalopus from ole Miss, a mis-named as atkinsoniana with a dark veil, and a few daucipes), a few validae and several collections of bisporigera.

Very nice!

I hear this was the most common Amanita at the NAMA foray (reports received today from Ron Pastorino and Nina Burghardt).

Very best,
