I guess I dont get the difference between A. muscaria and A. amerimuscaria. I would assume A. amerimuscaria is all north american(maybe south american) muscarioids. I have also heard that A. amerimuscaria is just A. muscaria var. guessowii. I wont be able to get a mature specimen as the deer get to them before they even open.(Any suggestions on keeping the deer away? This is public forest service land btw) By tan friend, you mean this guy?—→> http://mushroomobserver.org/53001?q=2Ls0 . Where should i send them address wise?

Maybe not…

Since there is a tannish or yellowish color variant of A. muscaria in the PNW, you might have it in Montana. The bulb looks like a muscarioid bulb all right. For microscopy we’d need a mature specimen. There is still a chance for adding more non-red material to the package for Dr. Geml,…if you can send dried material of your tan friend.
