Observation 211607: Amanita rasitabula Tulloss nom. prov.
When: 2015-07-27

Notes: Specimen 1 after opening overnight (see image 107): cap dia. 8 cm., cap flesh 8 mm thick over stem, stem +17 cm. long and 8 mm x 15 mm wide. The stem length was difficult to get a precise measurement on due to the curve—I have no measuring tape just a straight edge. Specimen 2 was smaller. Specimen 3 was not collected.

Recognized by sight: There are several white species in the northern tier of U.S. states and Canada. At the moment, we need to segregate them with DNA. This one is not A. populiphila and, because of the weak volval sac, is reminiscent of rasitabula.

Thank you!!!

mid-September at about the time that I went to North Carolina for two forays. Frankly, we have not yet caught up with the specimens that came into us at that time.

Mea culpa.

I hope it will be somewhat encouraging to you that one of the things that has occupied us in the last two months has been creation of more illustrated regional checklists. One of them is for the northeastern US states and adjacent Canada. So I hope that we will have something available to you along those lines before the next collecting season.

Very best,

Rod
