Basically no rain…

but all of the observations were in artificially watered areas.

I would indeed like to see dried material very much.

There’s no reason to assume that only one section of Limacella exists in southern California. This material has no membranous annulus that I can see; hence, if it is a Limacella, then it wouldn’t be in section Amanitellae (which has a membranous, non-slimey partial veil and a dry stem). However, it is amazing to me that you are finding such taxa in the current drought. Are you getting rain?

Very best,

Rod

When these are fully dried, I’ll send you material you’d like, from any of the now 4 observations of this.
