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

Thank you.

I would be happy to send you a couple specimens. I will try to get them out tomorrow.

Hello, Randy. EDITED.

Thanks for posting this interesting set of photographs. Recently we have been trying to sort through the eastern Vaginatae with similar cap color and a similarly graying and submembranous universal veil. We have found that using some genetic sequences, there seem to be as many as a dozen taxa in this group in the east. The two most common of these taxa have had their names appear on MO: A.rhacopus” and A.texasorora.”

We are very interested in finding out more about the taxon or taxa of the west that have the same type of universal veil. We expect that A. constricta will be one of these taxa; however, we have noted that more than one sequence (e.g., from the proposed barcode gene) has been attributed to constricta suggesting there is some difficulty in applying the name…perhaps due to the presence of genetically distinct, but morphologically similar, taxa.

It would be very interesting and useful to us if you could send us representative material from the collection that backs up this observation.

If you have questions that you want to reach me, you can post them here or email me via the MO email capability.

Very best,
