To be very frank, this is the situation with similar taxa from BC, WA, & OR.

We have two such taxa they have been separated tentatively from the set of known Limacella species of North America by molecular means. We have color images; and, for this reason, we can tell they bear some similarity to the species represented by this observation.

What we know is to be found here:

http://www.amanitaceae.org?Limacella%20sp-Krstic-20.xi.2010

http://www.amanitaceae.org?Limacella%20sp-L-WA01

For the former we have some microscopic detail. For the latter, we have none as of yet.

This is the current situation.

Very best,

Rod

Supporting specimen was submitted to the UBC herbarium

The supporting specimen for this observation has been submitted to the UBC herbarium, but it is still waiting to be accessioned. There are four UBC specimens labelled “Limacella ochroleuca”, all collected and identifified by Oluna and all of them needs a closer look and scrutiny. What name would you suggest for our North American material? I assume that Oluna used Moser for ID (hence the European name), what other literature would you suggest?
Below are the other UBC collections labeled “Limacella ochroleuca”. All were collected and “identified” by Oluna. I will see if I have any jpegs or drawing going with them and if yes, I will post them on MO as well.
Many thanks for your comments and your help.
Adolf

UBC herbarium has these additional Oluna’s specimens labelled as Limacella ochraceolutea:

To date, we have not found that a European taxon…

of Limacella is present in the U.S.

On the other hand, at the present time, we have not been able to obtain authentic material of L. ochraceolutea.

Very best,
