I have checked the herbarium data base for this material…

… (using the MO #, “sinicoflav”, and “Taylor”)). It seems that we don’t have it, Garrett. I think we have processed all material that we have received through April 2017. I’m sorry that I can’t report otherwise.

Very best,

I also called it sinicoflava and it was collected on the same day. I don’t see where you have received this material either.

How about “sp-S06”? …..EDITED….

This has no yellow in the caps and a volva that looks at least somewhat like the one depicted here.


I’d suggest mailing it because a round trip to NC is bound to rehydrate

the specimens to some degree, which would not be good.

Very best,


I seem to recall the stipe also had some unusual color for sinicoflava as well.

On this one anyhow, not sure about the other. The caps were identical in coloration and striation. The stipe was mostly hollow, but with some stuffing here and there, a pretty common feature of these I guess. I will include these in your next package or I will bring them all to NAMA.

Interesting, Garrett.

The color doesn’t seem like that of sinicoflava in this case either. I’m wondering if this mushroom as well as the other posted today might have lost pigment because of aging. I’ve never noticed that about sinicoflava, however.

Very best,
