It was found under the same trees as the one I sent you last year … I figured that was a pretty good possibility! :)

Thanks for sending the material, Patrick.

Your image of the cap’s warts is very strongly supportive of your determination of A. ravenelii.

are a good indicator for A. ravenelii…at least in the eastern U.S.

I look forward to seeing the specimen.

Very best,
