I’m not really set-up for microscopy. I only have a kids garage sale microscope.
I have been passing items to Debbie when she requests them. Right now I am allowing this Observations http://mushroomobserver.org/64391?q=3tCf

I don’t think they are the same, if that matters, but it would be nice to see what if any are the microscopic differences, it would be at least a start in beginning to delineate some of these western species.=)

except I am not calling my JMP exannulate amanita, whose microscopy that I referenced, “aprica group.”

I have collected another species in Huckleberry that does seem to be more similar to aprica, as does BakerST’s obsie, but we are also whistling in the dark here insofar as attempting to put names on them.

It would be interesting to compare your microscopy directly against this particular group.

there could well be more than one species involved…

but here is the microscopy on the amanita that I recently collected in Oakland:

Yes, I’m aware of that, did you do the microscopy on this group? I’d love to see it.

yes. I am collecting something very similar in Oakland.

we have a number of undescribed species here in section Amanita.

This is an interesting group, has anyone had a chance to look at them microscopically?
