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

I’ve had the honor of meeting Elaine twice in the states.

She visited us for a day or two both times. A very nice and admirable lady. She came to Amanita after a career in plant pathology if I remember correctly. I’ve had the pleasure of reading some of her work and her students’ work in manuscript.

Very best,


Rod, Elaine Davison on SW Australian amanitas

She was unknown to me . Australia has a poor reputation for credit to hard working scientists. Looked at her papers, Impressive and well prepared for the reader.

If you enjoy what you do it does not become work.
A new member of the Vaginatae from SW Australia recently appeared

in the journal Nuytsia (A. drummondii). The first author was Elaine Davison who is hard at work on SW Australian amanitas.

Very best,


I agree that this is probably distinct from 202936.

After decades of working on the Vaginatae, I can only conclude that people had no interest in them (they are hard to work with morphologically). So many species that have not been formally reported. So few names.

Very best,
