Hello, Susanne.

I am working the species in North America that look very like the European A. ceciliae, but are generally smaller and are never yellow-bronze in early expansion of the fruiting body. It seems that we have quite a few different species although we don’t yet know if they can be told apart morphologically.

If you ever have the time and inclination to dry material for scientific examination, I would be very interested in examiing material of ceciliae or ceciliae-like amanitas from the region in which you collect.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss
