very similar to that of the present observation was sent to me last year.

I have checked my records. The sample was NOT sent; it is part of a backlog waiting to go out.

Very best,

Here is a similar find from the same area. According to the post you may already have DNA from this one, Rod. http://mushroomobserver.org/146317?q=2DIM4

Perhaps a white form, from clade II/A?

It seems more off-white compared with the bright white of the eastern “white” form.

If you can, please measure the subhymenium layer.

Very interesting, Sava.

Your far enough west so that this could be a white variant of muscaria or chrysoblema or something I don’t have much (or any) experience with.

If the dried material is available for me to see, I’d like to look at it and get a DNA sequence if possible.

Very best,
