How about these Grey ones, Dr. Tulloss?

email me an address, my toaster oven did a fair job drying these things down – I managed to get the two in question in that photo, they are packaged separately and ready to ship!
I will be out again tomorrow and I’ll see if I can dry some for you.
We have a member of the Phalloideae that begins very dark and becomes gray with age in the Appalachians. However, I’m not aware of a graying North American species that begins white or off-white. There is such a species in Central America (A. eburnea) that I may have seen in Mexico. I don’t know it for the U.S. If you can dry some of the present species, I’ll be interested in taking a look. I’ve been asked to participate in a study of toxic North American Phalloideae. A collection of this critter would fit the bill very well. If the plan is funded and the chemistry does its job, we ought to get a toxin assay, DNA sequences, and some microscopy as an outcome of your expense in time and energy. Probably should end with something close to a determination of the species.
