with that ring of extra volval material in the bottom couple of photos?
and how ’bout a photo of that newly famous plastic box? ;)
is that they grow with birch, but several Salix species are also present at the location.
Are these non-dwarf Salix mycorrhizal?
Yesterday, Mary took a sandwich for lunch to work with her in the box that your limacellas came in. She reports the box behaved well. There were no signs of its rejecting nonmycological contents. :-)
Thank you for information, specimens, and boxes.
No kinds of dwarf Salix, mostly what I beleive is S. myrsinifolia, phylicifolia, caprea, borealis (and probably several hybrids, at least too hard for me to ID..), the common Betula pubescens, and Juniperus communis. Amanita fulva is common at this spot too.
Strange that you don’t find these plastic boxes. They are meant to be used for food in the freezer, and we can buy them in almost every grocery store.
But you don’t need to, if I keep sending collections in them :-)
The material from this observation has been received in good order, in NJ, in one of your remarkable Finnish packing boxes. I fail to understand why we can’t find such objects easily in the U.S.
Perhaps, they are all imported to New York and snatched up by the knowledgeable populace there.
Thank you for the specimen.
I was really glad to find it at the same location again! Then I was able to confirm the earlier obs from the same location (with just one poor photo).
This materials seems very like the material I have seen in photographs from Norway and France; and the volva is certainly what should be expected in the A. submembranaceae group. The fact that mature material still appears olivaceous (or grayish yellow in some books) probably serves to distinguish the collection (as much as possible in a photograph) from Amanita mortenii, which begins olivaceous be comes an orangish (cardboard) brown.
Thanks for posting the interest pictures, expecially the details of the graying and collapsing volval sac.
