I forgot that observation on the website. It’s my mistake.

Thank you for pointing it out to me.

Very best,


Thanks Rod

I did keep these and added an herbarium specimen. So maybe they will help.

I have never seen them faded before either, but my experience with this species is limited. On the technical tab for sp-34 at Amanitaceae it says of the pileus, “partially bleaching or becoming uniformly pale cream in age”. I’ve seen the caps partially bleached out before. Is this not right or am I misunderstanding it?

I’m hoping that this summer…

we can derive a sequence or more for “sp-34”. This should help a little in the future. I’ve never seen a faded cap in this species; however, that doesn’t mean it couldn’t happen.

Very best,


Good point, Rod

These seemed like a good match otherwise and they were beginning to dry in situ, so I assumed the caps had faded. I reeled back my ID a little.
