to be involved in these investigations.

Maybe I just need to walk up that hill out back a little earlier in the morning to see one of those fleeting partial veils :-)

The folks working with me put in a lot of time over the last month (plus)….

sampling material of section Amanita for a joint project involving sequencing in Dr. Jozsef Geml’s lab. We sent a relatively large group of sp-34 samples including material from my patch (which shows transient partial veils sometimes) and material from other places including Luzerne County, PA. I’m hoping that we get a lot of success and can see what sort of support we get for the hypothesis that it’s all one species or the opposite hypothesis.

It will take awhile for the data to start coming back. However, don’t hesitate to bug me on this point if you don’t hear from me by mid-September.

Very best,

What I have been calling species 34 is a small yellowish amanita which lacks a partial veil. I know that the Amanita Studies website had reported this species as having a partial veil. I expect this feature will be revised at some point. Of the more than 100 I have observed, many of them newly emerged buttons, none ever exhibited any evidence of a pv.

I think the collection seen here in this obs may be a candidate for species S01.
