If I see that one again I will collect and dry it. I corrected the “35” to “36” as that is the observation that I meant to cite.

Did you mean Amanitasp-T36”?

I don’t have anything posted about “sp-T35” on the WAO website except that it is known from a specimen in the Field Museum herbarium.

The colors of the cap in your material is something like that of “sp-T36”; however, compare the length of the marginal striations of the caps in the two species. As a proportion of the cap radius, the striations in your material are shorter than the very long striations in some photos of the species that is recorded from Missouri and Texas.

If you have the opportunity to collect and dry material like that posted in this observation, I would very much like to examine it.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss
