But that’s not saying very much. There is probably a significant group of flavoconia lookalikes just as is the case with their east Asian kissing cousin A. flavipes. We know we can segregate var. inquinata and A. elongata from A. flavoconia in the Western Hemisphere; so we have a taxonomic start on our set of “flavoconioids.” We can also segregate rather similar species such as Amanita “sp-36” and others. But the genetic picture is very incomplete. At the moment some data is being collected; but we don’t have a focused program that I know of that is searching out genetic variation in the flavoconia group in the Western Hemisphere.
I have received a few emails and one paper from colleagues in China (in Dr. Zhu-liang Yang’s lab.) indicating that they are finding genetic segregation of morphologically differentiable species in what they (and I) once called A. flavipes. Someday this information should come out in detail.
