“Patrick, I noticed that you recently posted a pic of the fly-killing Amanita at the mushroomhunting.org . Could one or both of you send me a high resolution copy of that Amanita in the fry boat with the dead flies around it?

“In answer to your question Patrick – I had field IDed the Amanita as A. multisquamosa last year, but did not confirm the id with spore measurements. Rod (Tulloss) looked at this year’s collection and agreed with my identification –but he did not examine any specimens of it under the scope either. The fact that it was surrounded by dead flies supports the identification since it was previously classified as a variety of A. pantherina.
