Rod, thank you for your RET # of our collection

I think it was a serious mistake to put these three new fields onto the MO observation front page and we asked MO owners to remove it at least from our observations:

No collection numbers [Add Collection Number]
Herbarium records: [Add Herbarium Record]
196188 @ Oluna & Adolf Ceska (aceska@telus.net): Personal Herbarium [Edit | Remove]
RET 671-10 @ Herbarium Amanitarum Rooseveltensis (RET)
No sequences [Add Sequence]

We consider this information as a part of the label and we put it into the Notes, together with our original ID.
If you have any other annotations to our collections, please, send them to us as Comments and we will copy them into our MO Notes.
Many thanks, Adolf & Oluna

Thanks Adolf,

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

Thank you, Adolf.

And thanks for the additional illustration. The peaked cap still reminds me of the form of the cap shown here:

http://www.amanitaceae.org?Limacella%20sp-L-CA01, which I mentioned to you previously.

Our standard practice is that Naomi or I will post here when the duplicate material is given an accession number in our herbarium. We will sample it for DNA sampling. Our sampling queue is not a short one. It will probably take on the order of months before we can report on the molecular side of things. We will report results on this page.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss

Dear Rod,
I sent you a reasonable part of our September 23, 2004 collection (2 sporocarps) this afternoon and you should get it in about ten days, Canada Post told me. Please, acknowledge the receipt when you get it, and keep us informed about your ID and other work done on this specimen.

Hello, Oluna and Adolf.

I am very interested to see this posting and to see that there is a voucher associated with it.

The drawing is lovely.

In studying Limacella in the U.S., so far I have two groups of collections that came to me under the names glioderma or delicata. I have been lucky enough to have some colleagues to work with who have successfully extracted DNA from the collections in both of the “groups.” It appears that neither group (they are genetically distinct) is representative of the European taxon.

The two groups are represented by some illustrations and other data on these pages:




I would expect the first named might be something like your material…if either is. Of course, you material could be utterly different from both.

If it is possible, I would very much like to have a chance to investigate part or all of your collection described in this obervation.

Very best,
