Observation 170954: Amanita sect. Vaginatae sensu Zhu L. Yang
When: 2014-07-18

Notes: Looks like “old species 17” is a good possibility. The one difference between the ones in the collection and the o-s 17 that regularly occurs in a different area of my property is that the volva is not friable on the ones seen in this obs.

This collection made in the exact same location as obs 98299 and obs 100142 . These other collections also featured the durable saccate volva.

Mowed path with young oaks nearby.

Preserved for study.

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

Thanks, again.

Third photo from the top is a bit overexposed.

I think the fourth photo best represents the color.

The color of these is similar to o-s 17, but not quite so lustrous/metalic as the o-s 17 I collect on my lawn. The ones in this obs grow in an area that gets significantly more shade than the o-s 17 spot.

David, as these all shots of the same two specimens…with different lighting?

Which shot or shots would you say is the best representative of the material?

The cap in some shots is way to pallid and cream-like for “old species 17.”

Sorry for the brevity. I’m really getting into a heavy work load with NEMF and Eagle Hill both coming up in September.

Very best,
