Observation 208335: Amanita sect. Vaginatae sensu Zhu L. Yang
When: 2015-06-30

Notes: Grassy path with 20-25 foot oaks nearby and small white pine in the area.

The last photo shows a post-mature specimen growing a foot or two away from the primary specimen.

Probably the same as obs 103646. Same exact location.

Specimen will be preserved for study.

Forgot to mention that the nrLSU does not place this in the Penatratrices.

I’m sorry to say that MO 103646 is not even in the queue at this time.

Not sure how it happened, but it does.

I’ll try to rectify that as soon as possible.

In the meantime will work with the material that has been sequenced to see what we can say of it.

Thanks again.


We have nrITS and nrLSU of good quality for this material.

The sequences are not very similar to any in GenBank or in my personal DataBase. In other word both sequences indicate that this is something new to me. It’s late.

Again, thanks very much, David.

Very best,


The new collection seems a bit grayer than the two older collections.

Do you get that impression also?

Very best,


I agree that we’re likely to see some special stuff in one of the (hopefully)…

upcoming drying cycles.

Sure, I’m still interested in rhacopus-like stuff. I’d like to focus on collections from counties or sites from which we have no sequenced collections. I’m pretty sure that I’m up-to-date on marking collections on the WAO website as to whether we have a sequence from a given collection or not. So you should be able to tell what counties have been “covered” with regard to rhacopus sequences, texasorora sequences, etc. I think I should restrict myself to collections from counties that lack reported sequences from BOTH of the (provisionally) named taxa.

Thanks very much for the offer.

Very best,


It’s in the dryer.

Rod, are you still interested in rhacopus material from here in NE PA? I’ve seen lots of them and preserved a few. Biggest problem is the frequent and copious rainfall causes things to rot rather quickly. The amanita seen in this obs was in good shape. I rescued it from the latest deluge that rolled in an hour later. Still raining.

Once the weather allows for some drying, I think there’s gonna be some really interesting stuff to find.

This material would be of interest to me, David.

Especially since we have the previous specimen to comare with it.

Very best,
