I’ll send you
Good morning, Eva.
One of the groups that I’m working on at the moment is the set of white-capped species in sect. Vaginatae. I think the issue is complex because, some species that we know by their pigmented caps can have an occasional white fruiting body. This is true through many sections of Amanita. Some of the species that are occasionally white were detectable by morphological means (A. phalloides, A. velosa, etc.). Some were not detected until genetic studies over significant populations showed that white-capped and colored-capped fruiting bodies belonged to the same (interbreeding) species (e.g., the North American “muscaria-like” taxa).
At any rate, I would very much appreciate an opportunity to examine white Vaginatae that you collect.
Thank you very much for all your support over recent years.
