of common eastern and western U.S. Phalloideae. You material is distinct in the form of its sporograph. The spore shape is outside of the spore shapes in the group of taxa responding positively to KOH in North America so far as I know. I think you may have something that is new to science. I would very much like to look at your dried material, Dr. May.
I’ll email you the sporograph. If you’d like other species added, I can do that. Or you can do it on this page:
on the WAO website.
