This material has been received and accessioned to Rod’s herbarium.

Hope I remember your comments about the transparent surface layer.

I bet that that impression has something to do with the gelatinized layer that allows the volva to slip off the cap. If I ever get some microscope time, I’d like to check out that thought.

Very best,

It is still in the ground. I think it is a marmorata too. Will put up more pics once it’s out. It is very difficult to get a proper pic of the marbling. There is like a clear film that covers the surface that makes it hard for the camera to capture what is beneath. I’ll go and see how she is doing right now. I think maybe by tomorrow she will be old enough to collect?

The cap’s pattern suggests A. marmorata.

And we know that marmorata occurs in your collecting patch.

Did you check the stem and bulb out?

Very best,
