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

If you get a chance to dry it….

Very best,


I will have to inform my wife that a trip to the Pines is now imperative :-)

I did dig it up fairly gently, but I will try to observe the volval sac more carefully (should I find it again).

And if you see it again, it would very interesting to know if it is just an accident…

the volval sac is broken up into pieces of if the volva is really fragile.

I keep going back to it. The pigment arrangement is quite unusual. If I’ve seen this before, it’s just been this year on MO. I hope you see it again Luke.

Very best,
