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

The upstanding volval limb and the point at the bottom of the bulb…

remind me of taxa such as A. elliptosperma and A. magnivelaris. I will try to find the time to look at the partial veil, which can separate the two species just named. The first has a thin membranous p.v. typical of the Phalloideae. Amanita magnivelaris has a thicker, somewhat felted, imperfectly white (more cream) p.v.

Very best,


Interesting, Naomi.

It seems several different types of Destroying Angels occur at Moon Lake Park.

The county wants to timber this county-owned property. Some folks, including me, shall mount a campaign to thwart this effort.

Rod suggests that the form of the volva and the pointed stem base suggest elliptosperma or magnivelaris. Thanks for sending it, we plan on sequencing for DNA.
