Observation 212583: Amanita amerifulva group

I was able to bring home a few fresh mushrooms from the Catskills which then went directly into the dehydrator, and I think this is one of them. But the specimen may actually represent a different observation obs 212580.

Cap color in photos is lighter than as seen when collected.

Very best,

Since I didn’t have my dehydrator with me while camping, I had decided to forgo trying to collect/preserve. I later changed my mind and decided to save a few things. Unfortunately, this was after I had passed up 212580. The confusion I mentioned in the notes referred to my not initially being sure about identity of the material that eventually ended up in my dryer. But upon careful comparison of dried material with photos, and considering that I had encountered 212583 after I had seen 212580, it became clear to me that the material in the package is 212583.

Sorry about that, Rod. I understand this material may not be suitable for study due to the possibility of uncertainty.

obs 211554 appears to be similar to obs 212580.

I don’t see 212580 in the box that you sent (in the subbox marked “Vaginatae”).

Under these circumstances, it is probably better for me not to attribute any MO # to the collection in question…unless you have some other thoughts….

Very best,
