We are involved in some really interesting work these days. One of the projects is to try to understand the group of species to which eastern North American mycologists have misapplied the name Amanita ceciliae. We think there are as many as eight different taxa to which that name has been misapplied. Some of these seem to have distinctive spore sizes. Others may have a volva that doesn’t turn black with age. Many mysteries still remain to be explored.

Very best,

Rod

These weren’t fresh enough to send you. I’ll do it when I find some more appropriate.

It’s really nice to see a rubescens from your area with different coloring…

than the white ones that you sent to me last year.

We have been able to obtain DNA from the ones you sent previously. We also have discovered that there are multiple (at least two) taxa in Europe called rubescens. It would be very interesting for us to know if this April material matches, or differs from, the material sent to us at the end of last year.

Thank you again for your 2013 efforts that have really helped our studies of rubescent amanitas in Europe and North America.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss
