Rod, have you tried using the e-mail tracking? It sends out genus and species specific requests to the observer if the specific name you are interested in is proposed.
Here is the E-mail Tracking for Limacella:
To get there, go to the species or genus name page and click on the “Email Tracking” link right below the search bar in the upper left hand corner.
I am seeking dried specimens of all species of Limacella as long as the specimen is documented by AT LEAST a good color photograph. Written notes on the fresh material in a addition to a photograph would be a preferred state of affairs.
No one has ever done a world monograph on Limacella and the last effort related to N. American Limacella taxa is now over 64 years old. It was written by Helen V. Smith when I was about 1 year old.
Some of the readers of this may have heard me talk recently about the evolution of Limacella and Amanita and what a common ancestor might have provided for inheritance to the two “sisters.” Some very interesting hypotheses are being explored based on shared morphology (there’s quite a bit). At any rate, I realized that I was evading deeper knowledge of the limacellas at my peril.
