I didn’t keep them. It seems like the only species of interest are those that I didn’t save :-)
What I have from this year’s tour is Amanita bulbosa, Amanita “lividopallescens” and Limacella glioderma.

Gotland is the only place where I’ve seen A. gemmata. Another obs is 13736, slightly paler than this, but I haven’t really regarded them as different colours.
I suppose Dr. Bas has seen a lot more of them than I have.
When I googled for more pictures of this species, I couldn’t see that they have much different colours anywhere else either, only a few pictures where they had more orange caps, but obviously with too much red colour in the photos..

Were you able to save these?

I noticed this observation has a different data than the L. guttata observation…and thought, “Maybe, Irene dried these?”

All the material near gemmata that I have seen from Scandinavia (all from Norway) was less strikingly yellow (more tannish) than these specimens. Do you see cap color variation in gemmata in your collecting areas?

Dr. Bas told me that he was under the impression that the cap color of gemmata was less vivid in northern Europe and only so strikingly yellow (even sometimes with a orange disc) in southern Europe.

Do you have thoughts on this?

R.
