I’m happy to send you a specimen. I’ll send an email for more details.

Could you spare a part of the dried material?

As you know I’m looking for the white Phalloideae species have unusual spores size-shape (including those described by Murrill). An example would be A. virosiformis. Also, we have found that there are some “late season” destroying angels of modest size in states to your north. I’d interested in pursuing more information about these (possibly distinct) taxa also.

Very best,

The fruiting body was about 9 cm in height.

Can you give us a feel for the size of the fruiting body?

Very best,
