I was afraid that my note of a few minutes ago would not be clear.

However, it looks like it was sufficient.

Very best,


Thanks, Rod.

Noted. In fact, I think I remember now… you had provided me with the web address when the site was still being tweaked. I now have the updated version bookmarked.

WW2.tullabs.com is David Tulloss’ website.

David designed and built the amanitaceae.org site.

The public name of the site is www.amanitaceae.org; and the site is meant to be viewed through that address.

The www.tullabs.com site is a frozen old version of the site, I think. That would mean, David W., that you have been missing a lot of changes to the site in the last year or so.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss

No problem, Dave

I have always been using amanitacea.org, and didn’t know tullabs.com existed. Perhaps Rod can comment on the existence of the second one.

Thanks, Igor.

Yes, using your link I see it. But when I use my bookmarked version of the Amanita website, I don’t see it. There are two different web addresses for rhacopus.



I updated my bookmark for the Amanita website, and now I get the new rhacopus page.

Rod, I checked the web page…

It’s now on the rhacopus page of WAO.

Very best,


You’re welcome, Rod.

This was a really nice specimen. I’m glad it got included. This fragile species doesn’t have much of a “shelf-life” in the field.

This material is confirmed as A. rhacopus by both …

the usural gene sequences. Thanks for the collection, David.

Very best,


Thanks Dave,

This material has been received and accessioned to Rod’s herbarium. We have also scheduled it for DNA sequencing.
