I was afraid that my note of a few minutes ago would not be clear.

However, it looks like it was sufficient.

Very best,


Thanks, Rod.

Noted. In fact, I think I remember now… you had provided me with the web address when the site was still being tweaked. I now have the updated version bookmarked.

WW2.tullabs.com is David Tulloss’ website.

David designed and built the amanitaceae.org site.

The public name of the site is www.amanitaceae.org; and the site is meant to be viewed through that address.

The www.tullabs.com site is a frozen old version of the site, I think. That would mean, David W., that you have been missing a lot of changes to the site in the last year or so.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss

No problem, Dave

I have always been using amanitacea.org, and didn’t know tullabs.com existed. Perhaps Rod can comment on the existence of the second one.

Thanks, Igor.

Yes, using your link I see it. But when I use my bookmarked version of the Amanita website, I don’t see it. There are two different web addresses for rhacopus.



I updated my bookmark for the Amanita website, and now I get the new rhacopus page.

It’s now on the rhacopus page of WAO.

Very best,


You’re welcome, Rod.

This was a really nice specimen. I’m glad it got included. This fragile species doesn’t have much of a “shelf-life” in the field.

This material is confirmed as A. rhacopus by both …

the usural gene sequences. Thanks for the collection, David.

Very best,

This material has been received and accessioned to Rod’s herbarium. We have also scheduled it for DNA sequencing.
