Okay, thanks Rod.

Looks like this one’s gonna need a real name before long.

I meant the proposed “crypt. temp.”

Where do I find the proposed name?

See proposed name. :)

Very best,


We got very clean sequences for both the “proposed fungal barcode” gene (nrITS)…

and the nrLSU gene for the voucher for this observation. I think it is very likely that this is Amanitasp-N65” for which we have sequences for the same two genes from the same collecting site. See the "discussion"" data field on the technical tab on this page:


Very best,


I think the present species is likely to be distinct from obs 169771.

The virgate distribution of color is, I think, one of the distinctions. The very dark area in the center is possibly another.

The present material has our herbarium accession number RET 642-9. The sample was submitted for sequencing at the same time as some of the material for which we just received raw data in the last two days. That shipment included data from RET 642-10 (your obs 170956).

We should hear about the present material in the near future…even if we hear that DNA could not be extracted.

Very best,


Thanks Dave,

We have recieved this material and accessioned it to Rod’s Herbarium. We have scheduled it for DNA sequencing.

Yes, I believe I can explain…

the color differences among the photos. Sometimes my camera seems to want to lean toward red, and other times toward yellow. This may be due to my using slightly different perspectives; I often move the subject and/or myself in order to variably utilize ambient light.

I think the color in the first photo (in situ) is probably closest to reality… brownish with tawny overtones. I think this one may be the same species as obs 169771

The virgate pattern of pigment on the cap is very interesting.

Your photos capture it well. Can you explain the difference in apparent cap color among the photos?

Very best,
