I’m happy to send you dried specimen(s). So far you’ve expressed interest in:

Any interest in the A. clorinosma suspects or my other recent Amanitas? I can send these off tomorrow.

I don’t know of a yellow-green tint in the cap of an apparent species…

of the Caesareae. So that makes this material of increased interest to me. It would be interesting to see what could be learned from any dried material.

Very best,

The cap of this mushroom had a faint yellow-green tint that I tried to capture in the first and fourth photos. The second photo is a bit washed-out.

It looks like this mushroom has a striate cap margin, a membranous partial veil,…

a saccate volva at the stiep base, and (I think) no bulb. This would place the species in section Caesareae. Am I correct in thinking that the cap lacks all color?

I have seen “albino” A. spreta, but that taxon has short marginal striations.

I have seen very whie material of A. murrilliana. This is a possibility.

Amanita ristichii is not known south of Maine and New Hampshire…if I remember correctly.

Very best,
