I admit that the two amanitas may look sufficiently different when you have them in your hand or when looking at a photo captured with a high-end camera, but your phone pix for the two species look very similar under the in situ lighting conditions.

Thanks, Steve.

We’ve set up the similar species from here in Roosevelt for sequencing sometime in the coming few months. A comparison will be interesting.

Very best,

I will set one of these samples for inclusion into your next shipment.

This species is more of a steely blue

while A. farinosa is more of a muted gray. I will post high-res color corrected pics sometime soon.

The caps of these almost look like that of Stephen’s A. farinosa from obs 213893. :-)

These sure remind me…

of the “old species 17” I frequently observe on the south-facing ridge of lawn next to my house; right down to the little piles of soil that get deposited on the cap surfaces.

I didn’t collect these. :-) Please contact Stephen Russell.

If it’s convenient, Igor, I’d like to take a look at this material.
