if Yves would actually publish the name for this more and more better known and visually recognizable species?
Thanks for sharing your lovely collection with us, Dave.
I vote less nom. prov.s and more sp. novum!
We have received DNA (both nrITS and nrLSU) for this material that definitively identifies this as Amanita rhacopus.
This material has been received and accessioned to Rod’s herbarium. We have also scheduled it for DNA sequencing.
I’ll look forward to the dried material. Thank you.
The cap looks “hammered” (malleate) and the volva broke up into flakes of uncooked oatmeal.
First of all, Dave, thanks for the box of dried material that you just sent. It is much appreciated. When Naomi is back from her travels, we’ll get the material accessioned in the Roosevelt herbarium.
The present specimen (this observation) is unusual for rhacopus (given my limited knowledge) in having this flaring ring of gray, submembranous volva, but it is seen in other taxa of the “rhacopus group.”
I’d like to get a chance to see what this collection can tell us about itself.
