Well, I’ll keep this in mind, although I won’t be that far east this year. I will make it to Ohio in August, so I’ll keep an eye out there, and see what I find.

If you find this again in 2013, …

If you find this again in 2013, it would be great if you could dry it and post on MO about it.

This year there is a project to obtain “citrina-like” specimens from as much of North America as possible, for DNA analsysis.

Very best,

Seems like a very interesting find, Douglas.

I’m used to seeing A. citrina f. lavendula in the autumn. I don’t recall ever seeing this type nearly as early as June… not to mention May 28, as your post indicates.

Lack of marginal cap straitions on this apparently mature specimen would appear to rule out any of the several early – occurring panthers of eastern NA. Citrina f. lavendula usually smells like raw potatoes.
