I realize that tropical forest can be very complex and that leaves in tropical forests are not always useful in telling the species of trees from which they may have fallen. Nevertheless, I am curious about the genera of the trees in the are of Campana. Is there a published survey of trees in the region?

For example, many of the collections we have seen from Panama from lower elevations were in forest in which Coccoloba was a significant component; and this tree was considered as a possible symbiont for the amanitas. We also, known that at elevations over about 900 m in Costa Rica, Quercus is the common, probable symbiont for amanitas.

Was found in Campana mountain, about 600 mts altitude, near a creek, in the ground, on the forest. I see 5 or 6 specimens, is very viscous.

Can you tell us anything about likely host tree species…

where this specimen was found?

If you run into this species again, Cristina and I would be very interested to look at it.
