Hi Rod,

Good to know that the material I sent arrived there.
The weather here is a bit strange (as in the last couple of years); The autumn starts regularly, but now we don’t have rain for almost tree weeks; Thus, the mushrooms that are able to emerge may look a bit strange, particularly Amanitas.
I collected this material today and I will try to look, at least for the spores, in the next days, whence I’ll update the observations. Curiously they were all collected in the same zone (the three I posted today), dozens of meters apart.
Thanks for your interest.
Best regards,

We received you most recent package on Friday. Thank you very much.

You seem to be running into quite a few interesting Vaginatae these days. Our season seems to have ended although there is some oscillation of temperatures. And after recent freezing nights, we sometimes find one more amanita…from the A. lavendula group.

I’d be very interested to know more of the taxa that you posted…in the last hour or two.

Very best,
