The GB accession number is KX827612.

Thanks again for your generosity.

It will take some time before the sequence is posted for publica access.

Hello, Chris.

Thank you for the information about the collecting site. I will probably ask you about other items as well.

The folks in Dr. Geml’s lab were able to obtain an nrITS sequence; this sequence provided the first genetic evidence that we were looking at something apparently different from the other species of Limacella in the collections being studied. The folks interested in such things phylogenies and phylogeography will want other genes. So attempts to derive other genes are in the works.

Thank you for supporting our use of your images.

I hope to have a draft page for the possible new species started soon.

Very best,

Rod

Rod,

Thanks for the update. You are welcome to use any of these photos. I’ll be interested to see what additional work reveals about this collection. Were you looking at the ITS region?

The collection location is an aspen/conifer forest (spruce and fir) at an altitude of approximately 2500 m. If you’d like, I can see if I can get more detailed information about vegetation, soil, etc. We experienced unseasonably heavy rain in late August, which resulted in an abundance and diversity of fungi.

Thanks,

Chris

Can you tell me anything about the environment in which you found this mushroom?

The first gene sequence derived from your collection came today. …EDITED

Thanks for giving us the chance to find out about this species.

We have a long way to go; however, we’ll create a new taxon page for this species on WAO. We’d like to use one or more of your photos. Would that be OK?

Thanks again.

Very best,

Rod

I’m glad that the specimens arrived

And I see now that sect. Lubricae is definitely a better placement for this Limacella. Thanks for the update—I’m interested to see the results of your analysis.

Don’t know why I didn’t pick up on this….

Since the stipe is originally moist in this species, it would be placed in Limacella sect. Lubricae; and L. glioderma is not in that section. Limacella glioderma is in the ringless, dry-stemmed section: section Limacella. So I’ll just suggest a sectional placement for this collection.

Your material was accessioned today in the Roosevelt herbarium.

We are very lucky to have a chance to submit Limacella samples for DNA sequencing next week; so I wanted to be sure that we had done the intake processing on your material.

Thank you again for the opportunity that your material represents.

Very best,

Rod

Another collection

Rod,

Would you also be interested in an Amanita barrowsii collection (Observation 177335). Please let me know and I will include both specimens.

Thanks,

Chris

Thanks very much, Chris.

I will let you know when it is in the mail.

It seems we’re getting a spate of Limacella observation on MO at the moment.

I would like to look at your material if that is possible.

My mailing address is on WAO on the

page.

Very best,

Rod
