This species, again, seems to be a novel one.

The proposed fungal barcode gene and its neighbor the nrLSU gene were both derived from Dr. Kudzma’s new data. The sequences are both unique in comparison with all relevant data in GenBank and in our local data base. It looks like this will be Amanitasp-62”.

Again, it seems to me that the morphology shown in your photos is distinctive also.

Thanks for sending all this interesting material.

Very best,


so many nice

so many nice finds Dave, Keep up the great work, Cant wait to see what this is.

We have received sequencing data for this material.

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

I just now counted as many as eight…

distinct species collected this July… aside from the usual suspects.

Rod, is next week a good time to send a package to you?

Thanks for the response, David.

That sounds like a great spot.

Very best,


I’ve lost count…

But I think I’ve collected maybe 6 different species of Vaginatea for which I have no ID suggestion. This is not counting the rhacopus, sinicoflava, amerifulva, or old 17.

The Rickett’s Glen spot produces an array of large grisettes every summer. We just received more rain. So maybe I’ll find even a few additional types? The oak hickory mix seems to be particularly productive.

Another one!

How many distinct taxa of the Vaginatae do you think you have collected so far in July 2014?

Very best,
