Under ponderosa pine. Unusual bronze to golden color. Most of our grisettes around here are truly grey.

While sequences are in good condition, they do not resolve the present material to any species perviously known to me. So it would be good to keep an eye out for this species in the future so that we can get some measurements on the fresh fruiting body, etc.
Thank you very much for sending this to me.
I hope 2017 will be a good year for you.
We have received this material and accessioned it to Rod’s herbarium. We have also scheduled it for DNA sequencing.

The mushroom that I was trying to remember that seemed somewhat similar to the one in your images was photographed, although unsatisfactorily; the color of the background is inappropriate and makes the mushroom appear darker in the unfortunate photograph:
I do have microscopic data for Amanita “sp-AZ18” making it possible to compare your material morphologically. Some of my Arizona collections have had problems about being sequenced (they’re chromatograph shy, I suppose). Nevertheless, I have the hope that we will be able to make a genetic comparison between my material and yours.
