Forgot about that one. I’ll stay tuned.

We have a “proposed barcode” sequence, Ron.

It’s good quality. So now we have to understand what it tells us. More later.

Very best,

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

And we’ll be happy to see its smiling face.

this one before. Conditions have been dry and with little else fruiting, I thought perhaps it was something I should recognize but just effected by lack of moisture.
I’ll be happy to send it off to the Herbarium Rooseveltensis Amanitarium.

Is this something that you’ve seen before or seen regularly?

There is something about the cylindric stem that appears not to flare at the apex that seems striking to me.

If you are willing to share some of this material, I’d very much like to take a look at it.

Very best,
