You have a good memory for your collections.

I think that a good memory for sites and the collections from those sites seems to be common among collectors who are really into mushrooms.

The presence of hickory is interesting.

The problem is that the yellow material posted by Eva today (12.vi.2010) that could be A. praecox is assignable to section Amanita and the material of the present observation (46468) belongs in section Vaginatae.
