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

Thanks very much for checking up on this one.

…was just located. The actual specimens are here and added to a box of material coming to you today. Expect it at the Herbarium Amanitarum Rooseveltensis by weeks end. Thanks! BB

I can tell you that it has not been accessioned into our herbarium. Also, we have no unopened box from you waiting for accessioning. That’s reasonable evidence that we didn’t get the material…I think.


Rod, did you guys ever receive these specimens?

I normally hear back but did not on this one. If not, that means it’s around here and I will have to hunt it down. I was about to seal up a box of specimens for you from 2014 and thought that I’d better check to make sure I have everything.

Thank you, Britt.

I gather that by reverse coloring you mean that the dark and light areas are “swapped”?

Bas observed in European material of the famously zonate A. umbrinolutea that, in a single collection, the umbo could be either the dark red-brown or the light grayish yellow-tan colors that create the zones in umbrinolutea.

We have an unknown number of zonate-capped Vaginatae in North America. We need to learn much more about these. There is a Pine Barrens site in NJ (famously a spot with a phalloides-inhabited White Pine plantation introduced durin the Great Depression) in which an umbrinolutea-like taxon appears every Fall (when there is enough rain).

Very best,


Sure thing Rod…

Material is dried and ready to go. I really was thrilled to see this one again this year and in the same region of the national park. It’s really unique looking. One of the specimens I’m sending (not shown in the photo) is sort of a reversed-color of the others. It has a light brown ring on a very light beige cap, much lighter than the other two (or the ones collected last year).

May we have some more material, Britt?
