Too bad there’s no specimen…

Recent research (molecular and morphological) shows there are more taxa in the eastern half of North America of the jacksonii-type and the arkansana-type and the banningiana-type than most people have suspected. I am desirous of receiving collections of this/these groups that are (1) well-photographed and (2) well-documented and (3) well-dried. I am especially interested in such collections for which the collector was not certain of which name to apply.

There are at least 3 unnamed taxa that (so far as is I know) can be segregated morphologically and molecularly AND belong near one or another of the above-named species.

My highest level (absolutely NOT certain) for this observation goes to Amanita banningiana…at present.

This is an interesting one, Dan.

Very best,
