Wisconsin, it would be interesting to know where this material falls in the Phalloideae. With the recent help of research of Cai et al. and unpublished work by several North American labs, it seems there are 5 destroying angels that react with yellow to KOH and have globose to subglobose to broadly ellipsoid spores. Amanita suballiacea has the narrowest spores of the group and (so far as is now known) can be distinguished based on its distinctive spores. It was originally described from Florida but it seems to grow quite lushly from the Gulf Coast to Wisconsin and Michigan (at least). I suspect it will be found in Canada.


Very best,

lower stem. It would be nice to know the species in this case. Can you spare part of the material, Andrew?
