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

Your description of the difficulty in obtaining the volva is very consistent with my…

experience with this species.

I’m hoping that we can get to working on the DNA of this amanita before the end of the present year.

Very best,


“Old species 17” fits this material.

There were quite a few of these at Moon Lake, all occurring in habitat similar to where I have collected “17” on my property.

There were a couple children on the club foray who enthusiastically gathered these but, of course, just broke off the stipe at ground level. Finally, I convinced one little girl to lead me to a specimen in-situ. Even when one is careful to extract this type, getting even some of the volval material is difficult.

How about rooseveltensis or “old species 17”?
